On the Extension of a Mehrotra-Type Algorithm for Semidefinite Optimization

It has been shown in various papers that most interior-point algorithms and their analysis can be generalized to semidefinite optimization. This paper presents an extension of the recent variant of Mehrotra’s predictor-corrector algorithm that was proposed by Salahi et al. (2005) for linear optimization problems. Based on the NT (Nesterov and Todd 1997) direction as … Read more

Mehrotra-type predictor-corrector algorithms revisited

Motivated by a numerical example which shows that a feasible version of Mehrotra’s original predictor-corrector algorithm might be inefficient in practice, Salahi et al., proposed a so-called safeguard based variant of the algorithm that enjoys polynomial iteration complexity while its practical efficiency is preserved. In this paper we analyze the same Mehrotra’s algorithm from a … Read more

Postponing the Choice of the Barrier Parameter in Mehrotra-Type Predictor-Corrector Algorithms

In \cite{SPT} the authors considered a variant of Mehrotra’s predictor-corrector algorithm that has been widely used in several IPMs based optimization packages. By an example they showed that this variant might make very small steps in order to keep the iterate in a certain neighborhood of the central path, that itself implies the inefficiency of … Read more

On Mehrotra-Type Predictor-Corrector Algorithms

In this paper we discuss the polynomiality of Mehrotra-type predictor-corrector algorithms. We consider a variant of the original prototype of the algorithm that has been widely used in several IPM based optimization packages, for which no complexity result is known to date. By an example we show that in this variant the usual Mehrotra-type adaptive … Read more
