Exact Solutions of Some Nonconvex Quadratic Optimization Problems via SDP and SOCP Relaxations

We show that SDP (semidefinite programming) and SOCP (second order cone programming) relaxations provide exact optimal solutions for a class of nonconvex quadratic optimization problems. It is a generalization of the results by S.~Zhang for a subclass of quadratic maximization problems that have nonnegative off-diagonal coefficient matrices of objective quadratic functions and diagonal coefficient matrices … Read more
