Clique family inequalities
a∑v∈W xv + (a - 1)∈v∈W, xv ≤ aδ
form an intriguing class of valid inequalities
for the stable set polytopes of all graphs.
We prove firstly
that their
Chvátal-rank is at most a, which
provides an alternative proof for the validity of clique family inequalities,
involving only standard rounding arguments.
Secondly, we strengthen the upper bound further and discuss consequences
regarding the Chvátal-rank of subclasses of claw-free graphs.
