Second-Order Conic and Polyhedral Approximations of the Exponential Cone: Application to Mixed-Integer Exponential Conic Programs

Exponents and logarithms exist in many important applications such as logistic regression, maximum likelihood, relative entropy and so on. Since the exponential cone can be viewed as the epigraph of perspective of the natural exponential function or the hypograph of perspective of the natural logarithm function, many mixed-integer nonlinear convex programs involving exponential or logarithm … Read more

Unbiased Subdata Selection for Fair Classification: A Unified Framework and Scalable Algorithms

As an important problem in modern data analytics, classification has witnessed varieties of applications from different domains. Different from conventional classification approaches, fair classification concerns the issues of unintentional biases against the sensitive features (e.g., gender, race). Due to high nonconvexity of fairness measures, existing methods are often unable to model exact fairness, which can … Read more
