Solving large scale semidefinite programsvia an iterative solver onthe augmented systems

The search directions in an interior-point method for large scale semidefinite programming (SDP) can be computed by applying a Krylov iterative method to either the Schur complement equation (SCE) or the augmented equation. Both methods suffer from slow convergence as interior-point iterates approach optimality. Numerical experiments have shown that diagonally preconditioned conjugate residual method on … Read more
