18  * @brief full strong LP branching rule
19  * @author Tobias Achterberg
20  *
21  * The full strong branching rule applies strong branching to every fractional variable of the LP solution
22  * at the current node of the branch-and-bound search. The rule selects the candidate
23  * which will cause the highest gain of the dual bound in the created sub-tree among all branching variables.
24  *
25  * For calculating the gain, a look-ahead is performed by solving the child node LPs which will result
26  * from branching on a variable.
27  *
28  * For a more mathematical description and a comparison between the strong branching rule and other branching rules
29  * in SCIP, we refer to
