Abstract

Exploiting symmetry in integer linear programming and lattice

point counting are two difficult problems for which no good general

approach exists. In fact, standard techniques work particularly poor

on symmetric problems. In this talk we give an overview about ongoing

work on new symmetry exploiting techniques for these two fundamental

problem classes involving lattice polytopes. We in particular present

some new ideas of decomposing lattice polytopes and give some initial

proof-of-concept results applying these new techniques.
