A Simple Primal-Dual Feasible Interior-Point Methodfor Nonlinear Programming with Monotone Descent

We propose and analyze a primal-dual interior point method of the “feasible” type, with the additional property that the objective function decreases at each iteration. A distinctive feature of the method is the use of different barrier parameter values for each constraint, with the purpose of better steering the constructed sequence away from non-KKT stationary … Read more
