An extension of the standard polynomial-time primal-dual path-following algorithm to the weighted determinant maximization problem with semidefinite constraints

The problem of maximizing the sum of linear functional and several weighted logarithmic determinant (logdet) functions under semidefinite constraints is a generalization of the semidefinite programming (SDP) and has a number of applications in statistics and datamining, and other areas of informatics and mathematical sciences. In this paper, we extend the framework of standard primal-dual … Read more
