Identifying Important Facets of the Master Polyhedra

We analyze and extend the shooting experiment described in Gomory, Johnson and Evans (2003), which is an empirical approach to identifying the "important" facets of the master cyclic group polyhedra. Evans (2002) and Gomory, Johnson and Evans (2003) suggest using these facets in the interpolation procedure of Gomory and Johnson (1972). The interpolation procedure is a method to generate cutting planes for general integer programs from facets of master cyclic group polyhedra.
