On the solution of large-scale SDP problems by the modified barrier method using iterative solvers

When solving large-scale semidefinite programming problems by second-order methods, the storage and factorization of the Newton matrix are the limiting factors. For a particular algorithm based on the modified barrier method, we propose to use iterative solvers instead of the routinely used direct factorization techniques. The preconditioned conjugate gradient method proves to be a viable … Read more
