An algorithm for the numerical solution of the "mixed integer" linear-programming problem in a finite number of variables. In problems of this type, the variables are constrained by linear inequalities and by the requirement that certain of the variables assume only integral values. The algorithm is an extension of the cutting plane technique for the solution of the "pure integer" problem.
