The perturbation analysis of nonconvex low-rank matrix robust recovery

In this paper, we bring forward a completely perturbed nonconvex Schatten $p$-minimization to address a model of completely perturbed low-rank matrix recovery. The paper that based on the restricted isometry property generalizes the investigation to a complete perturbation model thinking over not only noise but also perturbation, gives the restricted isometry property condition that guarantees … Read more

Active Set Complexity of the Away-step Frank-Wolfe Algorithm

In this paper, we study active set identification results for the away-step Frank-Wolfe algorithm in different settings. We first prove a local identification property that we apply, in combination with a convergence hypothesis, to get an active set identification result. We then prove, in the nonconvex case, a novel O(1/ √k) convergence rate result and … Read more

Outer Approximation for Global Optimization of Mixed-Integer Quadratic Bilevel Problems

Bilevel optimization problems have received a lot of attention in the last years and decades. Besides numerous theoretical developments there also evolved novel solution algorithms for mixed-integer linear bilevel problems and the most recent algorithms use branch-and-cut techniques from mixed-integer programming that are especially tailored for the bilevel context. In this paper, we consider MIQP-QP … Read more

Modeling Hessian-vector products in nonlinear optimization: New Hessian-free methods

In this paper, we suggest two ways of calculating interpolation models for unconstrained smooth nonlinear optimization when Hessian-vector products are available. The main idea is to interpolate the objective function using a quadratic on a set of points around the current one and concurrently using the curvature information from products of the Hessian times appropriate … Read more

Upper and Lower Bounds for Large Scale Multistage Stochastic Optimization Problems: Application to Microgrid Management

We consider a microgrid where different prosumers exchange energy altogether by the edges of a given network. Each prosumer is located to a node of the network and encompasses energy consumption, energy production and storage capacities (battery, electrical hot water tank). The problem is coupled both in time and in space, so that a direct … Read more

Upper and Lower Bounds for Large Scale Multistage Stochastic Optimization Problems: Decomposition Methods

We consider a large scale multistage stochastic optimization problem involving multiple units. Each unit is a (small) control system. Static constraints couple units at each stage. To tackle such large scale problems, we propose two decomposition methods, whether handling the coupling constraints by prices or by resources. We introduce the sequence (one per stage) of … Read more

Facial Reduction for Symmetry Reduced Semidefinite Programs

We consider both facial and symmetry reduction techniques for semidefinite programming, SDP. We show that the two together fit surprisingly well in an alternating direction method of multipliers, ADMM, approach. The combination of facial and symmetry reduction leads to a significant improvement in both numerical stability and running time for both the ADMM and interior … Read more

A New Preconditioning Approach for an Interior Point-Proximal Method of Multipliers for Linear and Convex Quadratic Programming

In this paper, we address the efficient numerical solution of linear and quadratic programming problems, often of large scale. With this aim, we devise an infeasible interior point method, blended with the proximal method of multipliers, which in turn results in a primal-dual regularized interior point method. Application of this method gives rise to a … Read more

The Fermat Rule for Set Optimization Problems with Lipschitzian Set-Valued Mappings

n this paper, we consider set optimization problems with respect to the set approach. Specifically, we deal with the lower less and the upper less set relations. First, we derive properties of convexity and Lipschitzianity of suitable scalarizing functionals, under the same assumption on the set-valued objective mapping. We then obtain upper estimates of the … Read more

A Limiting Analysis on Regularization of Singular SDP and its Implication to Infeasible Interior-point Algorithms

We consider primal-dual pairs of semidefinite programs and assume that they are ill-posed, i.e., both primal and dual are either weakly feasible or weakly infeasible. Under such circumstances, strong duality may break down and the primal and dual might have a nonzero duality gap. Nevertheless, there are arbitrary small perturbations to the problem data which … Read more
