Asymptotic behavior of the central path for a special class of degenerate SDP problems

This paper studies the asymptotic behavior of the central path $(X(\nu),S(\nu),y(\nu))$ as $\nu \downarrow 0$ for a class of degenerate semidefinite programming (SDP) problems, namely those that do not have strictly complementary primal-dual optimal solutions and whose “degenerate diagonal blocks” $X_{\cT}(\nu)$ and $S_{\cT}(\nu)$ of the central path are assumed to satisfy $\max\{ \|X_{\cT}(\nu)\|, \|S_{\cT}(\nu)\| \} … Read more
