Full Nesterov-Todd Step Interior-Point Methods for Symmetric Optimization

Some Jordan algebras were proved more than a decade ago to be an indispensable tool in the unified study of interior-point methods. By using it, we generalize the infeasible interior-point method for linear optimization of Roos [SIAM J. Optim., 16(4):1110–1136 (electronic), 2006] to symmetric optimization. This unifies the analysis for linear, second-order cone and semidefinite … Read more

An Infeasible Interior-Point Algorithm with full-Newton Step for Linear Optimization

In this paper we present an infeasible interior-point algorithm for solving linear optimization problems. This algorithm is obtained by modifying the search direction in the algorithm [C. Roos, A full-Newton step ${O}(n)$ infeasible interior-point algorithm for linear optimization, 16(4) 2006, 1110-1136.]. The analysis of our algorithm is much simpler than that of the Roos’s algorithm … Read more

Full Nesterov-Todd Step Primal-Dual Interior-Point Methods for Second-Order Cone Optimization

After a brief introduction to Jordan algebras, we present a primal-dual interior-point algorithm for second-order conic optimization that uses full Nesterov-Todd-steps; no line searches are required. The number of iterations of the algorithm is $O(\sqrt{N}\log ({N}/{\varepsilon})$, where $N$ stands for the number of second-order cones in the problem formulation and $\varepsilon$ is the desired accuracy. … Read more
