Computing All Nonsingular Solutions of Cyclic-n Polynomial Using Polyhedral Homotopy Continuation Methods

All isolated solutions of the cyclic-n polynomial equations are not known for larger dimensions than 11. We exploit two types of symmetric structures in the cyclic-n polynomial to compute all isolated nonsingular solutions of the equations efficiently by the polyhedral homotopy continuation method and to verify the correctness of the generated approximate solutions. Numerical results … Read more

Lagrangian dual interior-point methods for semidefinite programs

This paper proposes a new predictor-corrector interior-point method for a class of semidefinite programs, which numerically traces the central trajectory in a space of Lagrange multipliers. The distinguished features of the method are full use of the BFGS quasi-Newton method in the corrector procedure and an application of the conjugate gradient method with an effective … Read more

Exploiting Sparsity in Semidefinite Programming via Matrix Completion II: Implementation and Numerical Results

In Part I of this series of articles, we introduced a general framework of exploiting the aggregate sparsity pattern over all data matrices of large scale and sparse semidefinite programs (SDPs) when solving them by primal-dual interior-point methods. This framework is based on some results about positive semidefinite matrix completion, and it can be embodied … Read more
