A Derivation of Lovász' Theta via Augmented Lagrange Duality

Mustapha Ç. Pinar (2010)

RAIRO - Operations Research

A recently introduced dualization technique for binary linear programs with equality constraints, essentially due to Poljak et al. [13], and further developed in Lemaréchal and Oustry [9], leads to simple alternative derivations of well-known, important relaxations to two well-known problems of discrete optimization: the maximum stable set problem and the maximum vertex cover problem. The resulting relaxation is easily transformed to the well-known Lovász θ number.

A logarithm barrier method for semi-definite programming

Jean-Pierre Crouzeix, Bachir Merikhi (2008)

RAIRO - Operations Research

This paper presents a logarithmic barrier method for solving a semi-definite linear program. The descent direction is the classical Newton direction. We propose alternative ways to determine the step-size along the direction which are more efficient than classical line-searches.

A new barrier for a class of semidefinite problems

Erik A. Papa Quiroz, Paolo Roberto Oliveira (2006)

RAIRO - Operations Research

We introduce a new barrier function to solve a class of Semidefinite Optimization Problems (SOP) with bounded variables. That class is motivated by some (SOP) as the minimization of the sum of the first few eigenvalues of symmetric matrices and graph partitioning problems. We study the primal-dual central path defined by the new barrier and we show that this path is analytic, bounded and that all cluster points are optimal solutions of the primal-dual pair of problems. Then, using some ideas from semi-analytic...

A numerical feasible interior point method for linear semidefinite programs

Djamel Benterki, Jean-Pierre Crouzeix, Bachir Merikhi (2007)

RAIRO - Operations Research

This paper presents a feasible primal algorithm for linear semidefinite programming. The algorithm starts with a strictly feasible solution, but in case where no such a solution is known, an application of the algorithm to an associate problem allows to obtain one. Finally, we present some numerical experiments which show that the algorithm works properly.

A Polynomial-time Interior-point Algorithm for Convex Quadratic Semidefinite Optimization

Y. Q. Bai, F. Y. Wang, X. W. Luo (2010)

RAIRO - Operations Research

In this paper we propose a primal-dual interior-point algorithm for convex quadratic semidefinite optimization problem. The search direction of algorithm is defined in terms of a matrix function and the iteration is generated by full-Newton step. Furthermore, we derive the iteration bound for the algorithm with small-update method, namely, O( n log n ε ), which is best-known bound so far.

First-order semidefinite programming for the two-electron treatment of many-electron atoms and molecules

David A. Mazziotti (2007)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis


The ground-state energy and properties of any many-electron atom or molecule may be rigorously computed by variationally computing the two-electron reduced density matrix rather than the many-electron wavefunction. While early attempts fifty years ago to compute the ground-state 2-RDM directly were stymied because the 2-RDM must be constrained to represent an N-electron wavefunction, recent advances in theory and optimization have made direct computation of the 2-RDM possible. The constraints in...

Full-Newton step infeasible interior-point algorithm for SDO problems

Hossein Mansouri (2012)

Kybernetika

In this paper we propose a primal-dual path-following interior-point algorithm for semidefinite optimization. The algorithm constructs strictly feasible iterates for a sequence of perturbations of the given problem and its dual problem. Each main step of the algorithm consists of a feasibility step and several centering steps. At each iteration, we use only full-Newton step. Moreover, we use a more natural feasibility step, which targets at the μ + -center. The iteration bound of the algorithm coincides...

Kernel-function Based Algorithms for Semidefinite Optimization

M. EL Ghami, Y. Q. Bai, C. Roos (2009)

RAIRO - Operations Research

Recently, Y.Q. Bai, M. El Ghami and C. Roos [3] introduced a new class of so-called eligible kernel functions which are defined by some simple conditions. The authors designed primal-dual interior-point methods for linear optimization (LO) based on eligible kernel functions and simplified the analysis of these methods considerably. In this paper we consider the semidefinite optimization (SDO) problem and we generalize the aforementioned results for LO to SDO. The iteration bounds obtained are...

New results on semidefinite bounds for 1 -constrained nonconvex quadratic optimization

Yong Xia (2013)

RAIRO - Operations Research - Recherche Opérationnelle

In this paper, we show that the direct semidefinite programming (SDP) bound for the nonconvex quadratic optimization problem over ℓ1 unit ball (QPL1) is equivalent to the optimal d.c. (difference between convex) bound for the standard quadratic programming reformulation of QPL1. Then we disprove a conjecture about the tightness of the direct SDP bound. Finally, as an extension of QPL1, we study the relaxation problem of the sparse principal component analysis, denoted by QPL2L1. We show that the...

On semidefinite bounds for maximization of a non-convex quadratic objective over the l1 unit ball

Mustafa Ç. Pinar, Marc Teboulle (2006)

RAIRO - Operations Research

We consider the non-convex quadratic maximization problem subject to the l1 unit ball constraint. The nature of the l1 norm structure makes this problem extremely hard to analyze, and as a consequence, the same difficulties are encountered when trying to build suitable approximations for this problem by some tractable convex counterpart formulations. We explore some properties of this problem, derive SDP-like relaxations and raise open questions.

On the central paths and Cauchy trajectories in semidefinite programming

Julio López, Héctor Ramírez C. (2010)

Kybernetika

In this work, we study the properties of central paths, defined with respect to a large class of penalty and barrier functions, for convex semidefinite programs. The type of programs studied here is characterized by the minimization of a smooth and convex objective function subject to a linear matrix inequality constraint. So, it is a particular case of convex programming with conic constraints. The studied class of functions consists of spectrally defined functions induced by penalty or barrier...

On the quadratic fractional optimization with a strictly convex quadratic constraint

Maziar Salahi, Saeed Fallahi (2015)

Kybernetika

In this paper, we have studied the problem of minimizing the ratio of two indefinite quadratic functions subject to a strictly convex quadratic constraint. First utilizing the relationship between fractional and parametric programming problems due to Dinkelbach, we reformulate the fractional problem as a univariate equation. To find the root of the univariate equation, the generalized Newton method is utilized that requires solving a nonconvex quadratic optimization problem at each iteration. A...

Optimization schemes for wireless sensor network localization

Ewa Niewiadomska-Szynkiewicz, Michał Marks (2009)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

Many applications of wireless sensor networks (WSN) require information about the geographical location of each sensor node. Self-organization and localization capabilities are one of the most important requirements in sensor networks. This paper provides an overview of centralized distance-based algorithms for estimating the positions of nodes in a sensor network. We discuss and compare three approaches: semidefinite programming, simulated annealing and two-phase stochastic optimization-a hybrid...

Representations of non-negative polynomials via KKT ideals

Dang Tuan Hiep (2011)

Annales Polonici Mathematici

This paper studies the representation of a non-negative polynomial f on a non-compact semi-algebraic set K modulo its KKT (Karush-Kuhn-Tucker) ideal. Under the assumption that f satisfies the boundary Hessian conditions (BHC) at each zero of f in K, we show that f can be represented as a sum of squares (SOS) of real polynomials modulo its KKT ideal if f ≥ 0 on K.
