Exact SDP relaxations for quadratic programs with bipartite graph structures

For nonconvex quadratically constrained quadratic programs (QCQPs), we first show that, under certain feasibility conditions, the standard semidefinite (SDP) relaxation is exact for QCQPs with bipartite graph structures. The exact optimal solutions are obtained by examining the dual SDP relaxation and the rank of the optimal solution of this dual SDP relaxation under strong duality. … Read more

On obtaining the convex hull of quadratic inequalities via aggregations

A classical approach for obtaining valid inequalities for a set involves weighted aggregations of the inequalities that describe such set. When the set is described by linear inequalities, thanks to the Farkas lemma, we know that every valid inequality can be obtained using aggregations. When the inequalities describing the set are two quadratics, Yildiran showed … Read more

Exact SDP relaxations of quadratically constrained quadratic programs with forest structures

We study the exactness of the semidefinite programming (SDP) relaxation of quadratically constrained quadratic programs (QCQPs). With the aggregate sparsity matrix from the data matrices of a QCQP with $n$ variables, the rank and positive semidefiniteness of the matrix are examined. We prove that if the rank of the aggregate sparsity matrix is not less … Read more

Solution of monotone complementarity and general convex programming problems using modified potential reduction interior point method

We present a homogeneous algorithm equipped with a modified potential function for the monotone complementarity problem. We show that this potential function is reduced by at least a constant amount if a scaled Lipschitz condition is satis ed. A practical algorithm based on this potential function is implemented in a software package named iOptimize. The implementation … Read more

Representing quadratically constrained quadratic programs as generalized copositive programs

We show that any nonconvex quadratically constrained quadratic program(QCQP) can be represented as a generalized copositive program. In fact,we provide two representations. The first is based on the concept of completely positive (CP) matrices over second order cones, while the second is based on CP matrices over the positive semidefinte cone. Our analysis assumes that … Read more
