Outlier detection in regression: conic quadratic formulations

In many applications, when building linear regression models, it is important to account for the presence of outliers, i.e., corrupted input data points. Such problems can be formulated as mixed-integer optimization problems involving cubic terms, each given by the product of a binary variable and a quadratic term of the continuous variables. Existing approaches in … Read more

A class of spectral bounds for Max k-cut

In this paper we introduce a new class of bounds for the maximum -cut problem on undirected edge-weighted simple graphs. The bounds involve eigenvalues of the weighted adjacency matrix together with geometrical parameters. They generalize previous results on the maximum (2-)cut problem and we demonstrate that they can strictly improve over other eigenvalue bounds from … Read more
