W ) is a weight vector (with w. ) then a n (w) denotes the maximum weight of an independent set of G and w~(w) denotes the maximum weight of a clique of G. They are called the weighted independence number and weighted clique number of G, respectively. 8) that u G(e) = Pe(Cn,ax;w) a n d a G ( 8 ) W = - <5"5> For further details about these notion, see [Go,Mb4] We now return to the characterization of scheduling problems with a singular solution. 7 THEOREM: An (RCPS)-problem given by 9 , 3 and K = C has a singular solution iff the following conditions hold: (i) |N| = 2 for each N€ 3, and (ii) The graph G obtained from G(9 ) by adding all undirected edges uv with {u,v} € y is a comparability graph that has a transitive orientation 9 that extends 9 .

If all k. behaves similarly. In fact, under cer- are strictly monotonically decreasing and convex functions on closed intervals [BR]) H is the inverse function of H. This covers the most important case that the k. are (affine) linear functions and hence justifies the discussion of H only. Given [A,9,K], the function H = Hfl „ is defined on the set J := { (0;x) I x,€ T } of achievable shortest project durations and has the 1 C maxv j j form H 0 v (t) := inf { 2. € I. 1) K Note that the infimum may not be attained and that the computation of H(t) may be a difficult problem.
