Log-domain interior-point methods for quadratic programming

Applying an interior-point method to the central-path conditions is a widely used approach for solving quadratic programs. Reformulating these conditions in the log-domain is a natural variation on this approach that to our knowledge is previously unstudied. In this paper, we analyze log-domain interior-point methods, proving their polynomial-time convergence and illustrating their excellent practical performance. … Read more

Asset-Liability Management Modelling with Risk Control by Stochastic Dominance

An Asset-Liability Management model with a novel strategy for controlling risk of underfunding is presented in this paper. The basic model involves multiperiod decisions (portfolio rebalancing) and deals with the usual uncertainty of investment returns and future liabilities. Therefore it is well-suited to a stochastic programming approach. A stochastic dominance concept is applied to measure … Read more
