Faster, but Weaker, Relaxations for Quadratically Constrained Quadratic Programs

We introduce a new relaxation framework for nonconvex quadratically constrained quadratic programs (QCQPs). In contrast to existing relaxations based on semidefinite programming (SDP), our relaxations incorporate features of both SDP and second order cone programming (SOCP) and, as a result, solve more quickly than SDP. A downside is that the calculated bounds are weaker than … Read more

Extension of Completely Positive Cone Relaxation to Polynomial Optimization

We propose the moment cone relaxation for a class of polynomial optimization problems (POPs) to extend the results on the completely positive cone programming relaxation for the quadratic optimization (QOP) model by Arima, Kim and Kojima. The moment cone relaxation is constructed to take advantage of sparsity of the POPs, so that efficient numerical methods … Read more

Parallel Implementation of Successive Sparse SDP Relaxations for Large-scale Euclidean Distance Geometry Problems

The Euclidean distance geometry problem (EDGP) includes locating sensors in a sensor network and constructing a molecular configuration using given distances in the two or three-dimensional Euclidean space. When the locations of some nodes, called anchors, are given, the problem can be dealt with many existing methods. An anchor-free problem in the three-dimensional space, however, … Read more

Simplified Copositive and Lagrangian Relaxations for Linearly Constrained Quadratic Optimization Problems in Continuous and Binary Variables

For a quadratic optimization problem (QOP) with linear equality constraints in continuous nonnegative variables and binary variables, we propose three relaxations in simplified forms with a parameter $\lambda$: Lagrangian, completely positive, and copositive relaxations. These relaxations are obtained by reducing the QOP to an equivalent QOP with a single quadratic equality constraint in nonnegative variables, … Read more

A Quadratically Constrained Quadratic Optimization Model for Completely Positive Cone Programming

We propose a class of quadratic optimization problems whose exact optimal objective values can be computed by their completely positive cone programming relaxations. The objective function can be any quadratic form. The constraints of each problem are described in terms of quadratic forms with no linear terms, and all constraints are homogeneous equalities, except one … Read more

Enclosing Ellipsoids and Elliptic Cylinders of Semialgebraic Sets and Their Application to Error Bounds in Polynomial Optimization

This paper is concerned with a class of ellipsoidal sets (ellipsoids and elliptic cylinders) in the m-dimensional Euclidean space which are determined by a freely chosen positive semidefinite matrix. All ellipsoidal sets in this class are similar to each other through a parallel transformation and a scaling around their centers by a constant factor. Based … Read more

SFSDP: a Sparse Version of Full SemiDefinite Programming Relaxation for Sensor Network Localization Problems

SFSDP is a Matlab package for solving a sensor network localization problem. These types of problems arise in monitoring and controlling applications using wireless sensor networks. SFSDP implements the semidefinite programming (SDP) relaxation proposed in Kim et al. [2009] for sensor network localization problems, as a sparse version of the full semidefinite programming relaxation (FSDP) … Read more

User’s Manual for SparseCoLO: Conversion Methods for Sparse Conic-form Linear Optimization Problems

SparseCoLO is a Matlab package for implementing the four conversion methods, proposed by Kim, Kojima, Mevissen, and Yamashita, via positive semidefinite matrix completion for an optimization problem with matrix inequalities satisfying a sparse chordal graph structure. It is based on quite a general description of optimization problem including both primal and dual form of linear, … Read more

Exploiting Sparsity in Linear and Nonlinear Matrix Inequalities via Positive Semidefinite Matrix Completion

A basic framework for exploiting sparsity via positive semidefinite matrix completion is presented for an optimization problem with linear and nonlinear matrix inequalities. The sparsity, characterized with a chordal graph structure, can be detected in the variable matrix or in a linear or nonlinear matrix-inequality constraint of the problem. We classify the sparsity in two … Read more

Exploiting Sparsity in SDP Relaxation for Sensor Network Localization

A sensor network localization problem can be formulated as a quadratic optimization problem (QOP). For quadratic optimization problems, semidefinite programming (SDP) relaxation by Lasserre with relaxation order 1 for general polynomial optimization problems (POPs) is known to be equivalent to the sparse SDP relaxation by Waki {¬•it et al.} with relaxation order 1, except the … Read more
