## A Comparative Study of New Barrier Functions for Primal-Dual Interior-Point Algorithms in Linear Optimization

Recently, so-called self-regular barrier functions for primal-dual interior-point methods (IPMs) for linear optimization were introduced. Each such barrier function is determined by its (univariate) self-regular kernel function. We introduce a new class of kernel functions. The class is defined by some simple conditions on the kernel function and its derivatives. These properties enable us to … Read more
