Modified alternating direction methods for the modified multiple-sets split feasibility problems

Inthispaper, weproposetwonewmultiple-setssplitfeasibilityproblem(MSFP)models, where the MSFP requires to find a point closest to the intersection of a family of closed convex sets in one space, such that its image under a linear transformation will be closest to the intersection of another family of closed convex sets in the image space. This problem arises in image restoration, … Read more

On Solving Biquadratic Optimization via Semidefinite Relaxation

In this paper, we study a class of biquadratic optimization problems. We first relax the original problem to its semidefinite programming (SDP) problem and discuss the approximation ratio between them. Under some conditions, we show that the relaxed problem is tight. Then we consider how to approximately solve the problems in polynomial time. Under several … Read more

Approximation algorithms for trilinear optimization with nonconvex constraints and its extensions

In this paper, we study trilinear optimization problems with nonconvex constraints under some assumptions. We first consider the semidefinite relaxation (SDR) of the original problem. Then motivated by So \cite{So2010}, we reduce the problem to that of determining the $L_2$-diameters of certain convex bodies, which can be approximately solved in deterministic polynomial-time. After the relaxed … Read more
