Projection and rescaling algorithm for finding most interior solutions to polyhedral conic systems

We propose a simple projection and rescaling algorithm that finds {\em most interior} solutions to the pair of feasibility problems \[ \text{find} x\in L\cap \R^n_{+} \text{ and } \text{find} \; \hat x\in L^\perp\cap\R^n_{+}, \] where $L$ is a linear subspace of $\R^n$ and $L^\perp$ is its orthogonal complement. The algorithm complements a basic procedure that … Read more

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

Conic systems and sublinear mappings: equivalent approaches

It is known that linear conic systems are a special case of set-valued sublinear mappings. Hence the latter subsumes the former. In this note we observe that linear conic systems also contain set-valued sublinear mappings as a special case. Consequently, the former also subsumes the latter.

A primal-dual symmetric relaxation for homogeneous conic systems

We address the feasibility of the pair of alternative conic systems of constraints Ax = 0, x \in C, and -A^T y \in C^*, defined by an m by n matrix A and a cone C in the n-dimensional Euclidean space. We reformulate this pair of conic systems as a primal-dual pair of conic programs. … Read more

A characterization of the distance to infeasibility under block-structured perturbations

We discuss several generalizations of the classical Eckart and Young identity. We show that a natural extension of this identity holds for rectangular matrices defining conic systems of constraints, and for perturbations restricted to a particular block structure, such as those determined by a sparsity pattern. Our results extend and unify the classical Eckart and … Read more
