A new class of large neighborhood path-following interior point algorithms for semidefinite optimization with (\sqrt{n}\log{\frac{{\rm Tr}(X^0S^0)}{\epsilon}})$ iteration complexity

In this paper, we extend the Ai-Zhang direction to the class of semidefinite optimization problems. We define a new wide neighborhood $\N(\tau_1,\tau_2,\eta)$ and, as usual, we utilize symmetric directions by scaling the Newton equation with special matrices. After defining the “positive part” and the “negative part” of a symmetric matrix, we solve the Newton equation … Read more
