The Vertex Coloring Problem is a classical graph problem with applications in scheduling, register allocation, map coloring, and many more.
For general graphs, it is an NP-hard problem. There exist multiple integer linear programming formulations to solve it.

In this lab, we will investigate and implement the set cover formulation, where we have to make use of the so-called column generation technique. On our way to implementing a complete Branch and Price algorithm, we will encounter different graph-manipulating techniques and other graph problems, such as the vertex cover problem or the independent set problem.

The goal is to get an insight into the Algorithm Engineering for integer linear programming.
