A Limiting Analysis on Regularization of Singular SDP and its Implication to Infeasible Interior-point Algorithms

We consider primal-dual pairs of semidefinite programs and assume that they are ill-posed, i.e., both primal and dual are either weakly feasible or weakly infeasible. Under such circumstances, strong duality may break down and the primal and dual might have a nonzero duality gap. Nevertheless, there are arbitrary small perturbations to the problem data which … Read more

Algorithms for the circle packing problem based on mixed-integer DC programming

Circle packing problems are a class of packing problems which attempt to pack a given set of circles into a container with no overlap. In this paper, we focus on the circle packing problem proposed by L{\’o}pez et.al. The problem is to pack circles of unequal size into a fixed size circular container, so as … Read more

An oracle-based projection and rescaling algorithm for linear semi-infinite feasibility problems and its application to SDP and SOCP

We point out that Chubanov’s oracle-based algorithm for linear programming [5] can be applied almost as it is to linear semi-infinite programming (LSIP). In this note, we describe the details and prove the polynomial complexity of the algorithm based on the real computation model proposed by Blum, Shub and Smale (the BSS model) which is … Read more
