Fortran subroutines for network flow optimization using an interior point algorithm

We describe FORTRAN subroutines for network flow optimization using an interior point network flow algorithm. We provide FORTRAN and C language drivers, as well as C language functions that, together with the subroutines, make up PDNET (Portugal, Resende, Veiga, and Júdice, 2000). The algorithm is described in detail and its implementation is outlined. Usage of … Read more

An annotated bibliography of network interior point methods

This paper presents an annotated bibliography on interior point methods for solving network flow problems. We consider single and multi-commodity network flow problems, as well as preconditioners used in implementations of conjugate gradient methods for solving the normal systems of equations that arise in interior network flow algorithms. Applications in electrical engineering and miscellaneous papers … Read more

A study of preconditioners for network interior point methods

We study and compare preconditioners available for network interior point methods. We derive upper bounds for the condition number of the preconditioned matrices used in the solution of systems of linear equations defining the algorithm search directions. The preconditioners are tested using PDNET, a state-of-the-art interior point code for the minimum cost network flow problem. … Read more
