## A Primal-Dual Homotopy Algorithm for l_1-Minimization with l_inf-Constraints

In this paper we propose a primal-dual homotopy method for $\ell_1$-minimization problems with infinity norm constraints in the context of sparse reconstruction. The natural homotopy parameter is the value of the bound for the constraints and we show that there exists a piecewise linear solution path with finitely many break points for the primal problem … Read more

## Optimization and homotopy methods for the Gibbs free energy of magmatic mixtures

In this paper we consider a mathematical model for magmatic mixtures based on the Gibbs free energy. Different reformulations of the problem are presented and some theoretical results about the existence and number of solutions are derived. Finally, two homotopy methods and a global optimization one are introduced and computationally tested. One of the homotopy … Read more
