An improved projection and rescaling algorithm for conic feasibility problems

Motivated by Chubanov’s projection-based method for linear feasibility problems [Chubanov2015], a projection and rescaling algorithm for the conic feasibility problem \[ find \; x\in L\bigcap \Omega \] is proposed in [Pena2016], where $L$ and $\Omega$ are respectively a linear subspace and the interior of a symmetric cone in a finitely dimensional vector space $V$. When … 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

Exploiting group symmetry in truss topology optimization

We consider semidefinite programming (SDP) formulations of certain truss topology optimization problems, where a lower bound is imposed on the fundamental frequency of vibration of the truss structure. These SDP formulations were introduced in: [M. Ohsaki, K. Fujisawa, N. Katoh and Y. Kanno, Semi-definite programming for topology optimization of trusses under multiple eigenvalue constraints, Comp. … Read more

A New Primal-Dual Interior-Point Algorithm for Second-Order Cone Optimization

We present a primal-dual interior-point algorithm for second-order conic optimization problems based on a specific class of kernel functions. This class has been investigated earlier for the case of linear optimization problems. In this paper we derive the complexity bounds $O(\sqrt{N})(\log N)\log\frac{N}{\epsilon})$ for large- and $O(\sqrt{N})\log\frac{N}{\epsilon}$ for small- update methods, respectively. Here $N$ denotes the … Read more
