Abstract or Description

In the early 90’s, the research community was unanimous: In order to solve integer programs of meaningful sizes, one had to exploit the structure of the underlying combinatorial problem; Gomory cuts (Gomory, 1960, 1963) made elegant theory (because they did not require knowledge of the underlying structure) but were utterly useless in practice (because they did not use the underlying structure!).
