This publication offers a postgraduate viewers the keys they should comprehend and extra improve a collection of instruments for the effective computation of decrease bounds and legitimate inequalities in integer courses and combinatorial optimization difficulties. After discussing the classical ways defined within the literature, the publication addresses the best way to expand those instruments to different non-standard formulations that could be utilized to a huge set of functions. Examples are supplied to demonstrate the underlying recommendations and to pave the best way for destiny contributions.

In Chap. 4, we will discuss for instance an extension to multidimensional domains yielding the so-called vector packing dual-feasible functions, which may be used to compute bounds for vector packing problems. Extending the principles of dual-feasible functions to the domain of real numbers is not trivial. The properties that apply to dual-feasible functions, and which have been reviewed in the previous chapter, are affected in this exercise, and some of them are even lost. This makes the task of deriving good non-dominated functions much more difficult.
