A Revisit to Quadratic Programming with One Inequality Quadratic Constraint via Matrix Pencil

The quadratic programming over one inequality quadratic constraint (QP1QC) is a very special case of quadratically constrained quadratic programming (QCQP) and attracted much attention since early 1990’s. It is now understood that, under the primal Slater condition, (QP1QC) has a tight SDP relaxation (PSDP). The optimal solution to (QP1QC), if exists, can be obtained by … Read more

Trust Region Subproblem with a Fixed Number of Additional Linear Inequality Constraints has Polynomial Complexity

The trust region subproblem with a fixed number m additional linear inequality constraints, denoted by (T_m), have drawn much attention recently. The question as to whether Problem ( T_m) is in Class P or Class NP remains open. So far, the only affirmative general result is that (T_1) has an exact SOCP/SDP reformulation and thus … Read more

A note on Legendre-Fenchel conjugate of the product of two positive-definite quadratic forms

The Legendre-Fenchel conjugate of the product of two positive-definite quadratic forms was posted as an open question in the field of nonlinear analysis and optimization by Hiriart-Urruty [`Question 11′ in {\it SIAM Review} 49, 255-273, (2007)]. Under a convex assumption on the function, it was answered by Zhao [SIAM J. Matrix Analysis $\&$ Applications, 31(4), … Read more

On RIC bounds of Compressed Sensing Matrices for Approximating Sparse Solutions Using Lq Quasi Norms

This paper follows the recent discussion on the sparse solution recovery with quasi-norms Lq; q\in(0,1) when the sensing matrix possesses a Restricted Isometry Constant \delta_{2k} (RIC). Our key tool is an improvement on a version of “the converse of a generalized Cauchy-Schwarz inequality” extended to the setting of quasi-norm. We show that, if \delta_{2k}\le 1/2, … Read more
