On solving the Cross-dock Door Assignment Problem, CDAP

\(\) A class of strong lower bounds on the solution value of a Linearized Integer Programming (LIP) reformulation is introduced for the binary quadratic optimization model to assign origin and destination nodes to strip and stack doors, resp., in a cross-dock infrastructure, whose goal is to minimize the transportation cost of the commodities to be … Read more

A decoupled first/second-order steps technique for nonconvex nonlinear unconstrained optimization with improved complexity bounds

In order to be provably convergent towards a second-order stationary point, optimization methods applied to nonconvex problems must necessarily exploit both first and second-order information. However, as revealed by recent complexity analyzes of some of these methods, the overall effort to reach second-order points is significantly larger when compared to the one of approaching first-order … Read more
