The main goal of the branch and bound algorithm in integer linear programming is to systematically explore the solution space of an integer linear programming problem in order to find the optimal integer solution. An integer linear programming problem involves finding integer values for decision variables that optimize a linear objective function while satisfying a set of linear constraints.
