We present decomposition logarithmic-barrier interior-point methods based on unital Jordan-Hilbert algebras for infinite-dimensional stochastic second-order cone programming problems in spin factors. The results show that the iteration complexity of the proposed algorithms is independent on the choice of Hilbert spaces from which the underlying spin factors are formed, and so it coincides with the best … Read more

Logarithmic-Barrier Decomposition Interior-Point Methods for Stochastic Linear Optimization in a Hilbert Space

Several logarithmic-barrier interior-point methods are now available for solving two-stage stochastic optimization problems with recourse in the finite-dimensional setting. However, despite the genuine need for studying such methods in general spaces, there are no infinite-dimensional analogs of these methods. Inspired by this evident gap in the literature, in this paper, we propose logarithmic-barrier decomposition-based interior-point … Read more
