Strengthened Existence and Uniqueness Conditions for Search Directions in Semidefinite Programming

Primal-dual interior-point (p-d i-p) methods for Semidefinite Programming (SDP) are generally based on solving a system of matrix equations for a Newton type search direction for a symmetrization of the optimality conditions. These search directions followed the derivation of similar p-d i-p methods for linear programming (LP). Among these, a computationally interesting search direction is … Read more
