Sufficient weighted complementarity problems

This paper presents some fundamental results about sufficient linear weighted complementarity problems. Such a problem depends on a nonnegative weight vector. If the weight vector is zero, the problem reduces to a sufficient linear complementarity problem that has been extensively studied. The introduction of the more general notion of a weighted complementarity problem (wCP) was … Read more

Interior point methods for sufficient LCP in a wide neighborhood of the central path with optimal iteration complexity

Three interior point methods are proposed for sufficient horizontal linear complementarity problems (HLCP): a large update path following algorithm, a first order corrector-predictor method, and a second order corrector-predictor method. All algorithms produce sequences of iterates in the wide neighborhood of the central path introduced by Ai and Zhang. The algorithms do not depend on … Read more

On the complexity of computing the handicap of a sufficient matrix

The class of sufficient matrices is important in the study of the linear complementarity problem(LCP) – some interior point methods (IPM’s) for LCP’s with sufficient data matrices have complexity polynomial in the bit size of the matrix and its handicap. In this paper we show that the handicap of a sufficient matrix may be exponential … Read more

Polynomial interior point algorithms for general LCPs

Linear Complementarity Problems ($LCP$s) belong to the class of $\mathbb{NP}$-complete problems. Therefore we can not expect a polynomial time solution method for $LCP$s without requiring some special property of the matrix coefficient matrix. Our aim is to construct some interior point algorithms which, according to the duality theorem in EP form, gives a solution of … Read more

New variant on the Mizuno-Todd-Ye predictor-corrector algorithm

We analyze a version of the Mizuno-Todd-Ye predictor-corrector interior point algorithm for the P_*(\kappa)-matrix linear complementarity problem (LCP). We assume the existence of a strictly positive feasible solution. Our version of the Mizuno-Todd-Ye predictor-corrector algorithm is a generalization of Potra’s (2002) conclusions on the LCP with P_*(\kappa)-matrices. To derive a formulation of the complexity for … Read more

New criss-cross type algorithms for linear complementarity problems with sufficient matrices

We generalize new criss-cross type algorithms for linear complementarity problems (LCPs) given with sufficient matrices. Most LCP solvers require apriori information about the input matrix. The sufficiency of a matrix is hard to be checked (no polynomial time method is known). Our algorithm is similar to Zhang’s linear programming, and Akkeleº-Balogh-Illés’s criss-cross type algorithm for … Read more
