Polynomial worst-case iteration complexity of quasi-Newton primal-dual interior point algorithms for linear programming

Quasi-Newton methods are well known techniques for large-scale numerical optimization. They use an approximation of the Hessian in optimization problems or the Jacobian in system of nonlinear equations. In the Interior Point context, quasi-Newton algorithms compute low-rank updates of the matrix associated with the Newton systems, instead of computing it from scratch at every iteration. … Read more

Quasi-Newton approaches to Interior Point Methods for quadratic problems

Interior Point Methods (IPM) rely on the Newton method for solving systems of nonlinear equations. Solving the linear systems which arise from this approach is the most computationally expensive task of an interior point iteration. If, due to problem’s inner structure, there are special techniques for efficiently solving linear systems, IPMs enjoy fast convergence and … Read more
