## Lower bounds for the maximum number of solutions generated by the simplex method

Kitahara and Mizuno get upper bounds for the maximum number of different basic feasible solutions generated by Dantzig�s simplex method. In this paper, we obtain lower bounds of the maximum number. Part of the results in this paper are shown in a paper by the authors as a quick report without proof. They present a … Read more

## A Simple Variant of the Mizuno-Todd-Ye Predictor-Corrector Algorithm and its Objective-Function-Free Complexity

In this paper, we propose a simple variant of the Mizuno-Todd-Ye predictor-corrector algorithm for linear programming problem (LP). Our variant executes a natural finite termination procedure at each iteration and it is easy to implement the algorithm. Our algorithm admits an objective-function free polynomial-time complexity when it is applied to LPs whose dual feasible region … Read more

## On the Number of Solutions Generated by the Dual Simplex Method

In this short paper, we give an upper bound for the number of different basic feasible solutions generated by the dual simplex method with the most negative pivoting rule for LP. The bound is comparable with the bound given by Kitahara and Mizuno (2010) for the primal simplex method. We apply the result to the … Read more

## On the Number of Solutions Generated by Dantzig’s Simplex Method for LP with Bounded Variables

We give an upper bound for the number of different basic feasible solutions generated by Dantzig’s simplex method (the simplex method with the most negative pivoting rule) for LP with bounded variables by extending the result of Kitahara and Mizuno (2010). We refine the analysis by them and improve an upper bound for a standard … Read more

## A Bound for the Number of Different Basic Solutions Generated by the Simplex Method

In this short paper, we give an upper bound for the number of different basic feasible solutions generated by the simplex method for linear programming problems having optimal solutions. The bound is polynomial of the number of constraints, the number of variables, and the ratio between the minimum and the maximum values of all the … Read more

## Klee-Minty’s LP and Upper Bounds for Dantzig’s Simplex Method

Kitahara and Mizuno (2010) get two upper bounds for the number of different basic feasible solutions generated by Dantzig’s simplex method. The size of the bounds highly depends on the ratio between the maximum and minimum values of all the positive elements of basic feasible solutions. In this paper, we show some relations between the … Read more

## An Analysis of Weighted Least Squares Method and Layered Least Squares Method with the Basis Block Lower Triangular Matrix Form

In this paper, we analyze the limiting behavior of the weighted least squares problem $\min_{x\in\Re^n}\sum_{i=1}^p\|D_i(A_ix-b_i)\|^2$, where each $D_i$ is a positive definite diagonal matrix. We consider the situation where the magnitude of the weights are drastically different block-wisely so that $\max(D_1)\geq\min(D_1) \gg \max(D_2) \geq \min(D_2) \gg \max(D_3) \geq \ldots \gg \max(D_{p-1}) \geq \min(D_{p-1}) \gg \max(D_p)$. … Read more

## An Extension of a Minimax Approach to Multiple Classification

When the mean vectors and the covariance matrices of two classes are available in a binary classification problem, Lanckriet et al.\ \cite{mpm} propose a minimax approach for finding a linear classifier which minimizes the worst-case (maximum) misclassification probability. We extend the minimax approach to a multiple classification problem, where the number $m$ of classes could … Read more
