Just for your information.
Prof. Bertsekas, the author of the well known RELAX code, kindly
permitted me to include an ANSI C version of RELAX-IV (manually
translated from his original Fortran 77 code to remove limitations
caused by static arrays and common blocks) in glpk under GPL v3. I also
wrote a driver to RELAX-IV that allows using the glpk graph object
(glp_graph) to represent the network. Testing RELAX-IV on a large set of
hard mincost instances has shown that it is at least 100 times faster
than the out-of-kilter algorithm and 1000 times faster than the glpk
simplex method. These routines are included in the glpk version 4.48,
which I plan to release in April.
