Duality results for conic convex programming by Zhi-Quan Luo( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper considers the problem of minimizing a linear function over the intersection of an affine space with a closed convex cone. In the first half of the paper, we give a detailed study of duality properties of this problem and present examples to illustrate these properties. In particular, we introduce the notions of weak/strong feasibility or infeasibility for a general primal-dual pair of conic convex programs, and then establish various relations between these notions and the duality properties of the problem. In the second half of the paper, we propose a self-dual embedding with the following properties: Any weakly centered sequence converging to a complementary pair either induces a sequence converging to a certificate of strong infeasibility, or induces a sequence of primal-dual pairs for which the amount of constraint violation converges to zero, and the corresponding objective values are in the limit not worse than the optimal objective value(s). In case of strong duality, these objective values in fact converge to the optimal value of the original problem. When the problem is neither strongly infeasible nor endowed with a complementary pair, we completely specify the asymptotic behavior of an indicator in relation to the status of the original problem, namely whether the problem (1) is weakly infeasible, (2) is feasible but with a positive duality gap, (3) has no duality gap nor complementary solution pair
On the extensions of Frank-Wolfe theorem by Zhi-Quan Luo( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper we consider optimization problems defined by a quadratic objective function and a finite number of quadratic inequality constraints. Given that the objective function is bounded over the feasible set, we present a comprehensive study of the conditions under which the optimal solution set is nonempty, thus extending the so-called Frank-Wolfe theorem. In particular, we first prove a general continuity result for the solution set defined by a system of convex quadratic inequalities. This result implies immediately that the optimal solution set of the aforementioned problem is nonempty when all the quadratic functions involved are convex. In the absence of the convexity of the objective function, we give examples showing that the optimal solution set may be empty either when there are two or more convex quadratic constraints, or when the Hessian of the objective function has two or more negative eigenvalues. In the case when there exists only one convex quadratic inequality constraint (together with other linear constraints), or when the constraint functions are all convex quadratic and the objective function is quasi-convex (thus allowing one negative eigenvalue in its Hessian matrix), we prove that the optimal solution set is nonempty
Superlinear convergence of a symmetric primal-dual path [following] algorithm for semidefinite programming by Zhi-Quan Luo( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper establishes the superlinear convergence of a symmetric primal-dual path following algorithm for semidefinite programming under the assumptions that the semidefinite program has a strictly complementary primal-dual optimal solution and that the size of the central path neighborhood tends to zero. The interior point algorithm considered here closely resembles the Mizuno-Todd-Ye predictor-corrector method for linear programming which is known to be quadratically convergent. It is shown that when the iterates are well centered, the duality gap is reduced superlinearly after each predictor step. Indeed, if each predictor step is succeeded by $r$ consecutive corrector steps then the predictor reduces the duality gap superlinearly with order $\frac{2}{1+2^{-2r}}$. The proof relies on a careful analysis of the central path for semidefinite programming. It is shown that under the strict complementarity assumption, the primal-dual central path converges to the analytic center of the primal-dual optimal solution set, and the distance from any point on the central path to this analytic center is bounded by the duality gap
