This note summarizes a report with the same title, where a study was carried out regarding a unified approach, proposed by Kojima, Mizuno and Yoshise, for interior point algorithms for the linear complementarily problem with a positive semidefinite matrix. This approach is extended to nonsymmetric matrices with nonnegative principal minors.

Abstract. This paper gives an extensive documentation of applications of finitedimensional nonlinear complementarity problems in engineering and equilibrium modeling. For most applications, we describe the problem briefly, state the defining equations of the model, and give functional expressions for the complementarity formulations. The goal of this documentation is threefold: (i) to summarize the essential applications of the nonlinear complementarity problem known to date, (ii) to provide a basis for the continued research on the nonlinear complementarity problem, and (iii) to supply a broad collection of realistic complementarity problems for use in algorithmic experimentation and other studies.

Recent improvements in the capabilities of complementarity solvers have led to an increased interest in using the complementarity problem framework to address practical problems arising in mathematical programming, economics, engineering, and the sciences. As a result, increasingly more difficult problems are being proposed that exceed the capabilities of even the best algorithms currently available. There is, therefore, an immediate need to improve the capabilities of complementarity solvers. This thesis addresses this need in two significant ways. First, the thesis proposes and develops a proximal perturbation strategy that enhances the robustness of Newtonbased complementarity solvers. This strategy enables algorithms to reliably find solutions even for problems whose natural merit functions have strict local minima that are not solutions. Based upon this strategy, three new algorithms are proposed for solving nonlinear mixed complementarity problems that represent a significant improvement in robustness over previous algorithms. These algorithms have local Qquadratic convergence behavior, yet depend only on a pseudomonotonicity assumption to achieve global convergence from arbitrary starting points. Using the MCPLIB and GAMSLIB test libraries, we perform extensive computational tests that demonstrate the effectiveness of these algorithms on realistic problems. Second, the thesis extends some previously existing algorithms to solve more general problem classes. Specifically, the NE/SQP method of Pang & Gabriel (1993), the semismooth equations approach of De Luca, Facchinei & Kanz...

Global methods for nonlinear complementarity problems formulate the problem as a system of nonsmooth nonlinear equations approach, or use continuation to trace a path defined by a smooth system of nonlinear equations. We formulate the nonlinear complementarity problem as a boundconstrained nonlinear least squares problem. Algorithms based on this formulation are applicable to general nonlinear complementarity problems, can be started from any nonnegative starting point, and each iteration only requires the solution of systems of linear equations. Convergence to a solution of the nonlinear complementarity problem is guaranteed under reasonable regularity assumptions. The converge rate is Qlinear, Qsuperlinear, or Qquadratic, depending on the tolerances used to solve the subproblems.

We propose a continuation method for a class of nonlinear complementarity problems(NCPs), including the NCP with a P 0 and R 0 function and the monotone NCP with a feasible interior point. The continuation method is based on a class of ChenMangasarian smooth functions. Unlike many existing continuation methods, the method follows the noninterior smoothing paths, and as a result, an initial point can be easily constructed. In addition, we introduce a procedure to dynamically update the neighborhoods associated with the smoothing paths, so that the algorithm is both globally convergent and locally superlinearly convergent under suitable assumptions. Finally, a hybrid continuationsmoothing method is proposed and is shown to have the same convergence properties under weaker conditions. 1 Introduction Let F : R n ! R n be a continuously differentiable function. The nonlinear complementarity problem, denoted by NCP(F ), is to find a vector (x; y) 2 R n \Theta R n such that F (x)...

A variational inequality problem with a mapping g : ! n ! ! n and lower and upper bounds on variables can be reformulated as a system of nonsmooth equations F (x) = 0 in ! n . Recently, several homotopy methods, such as interiorpoint and smoothing methods, have been employed to solve the problem. All of these methods use parametric functions and construct perturbed equations to approximate the problem. The solution to the perturbed system constitutes a smooth trajectory leading to the solution of the original variational inequality problem. The methods generate iterates to follow the trajectory. Among these methods ChenMangasarian and GabrielMor'e proposed a class of smooth functions to approximate F . In this paper, we study several properties of the trajectory defined by solutions of these smooth systems. We propose a homotopysmoothing method for solving the variational inequality problem, and show that the method converges globally and superlinearly under mild conditions. ...

A noninterior continuation method is proposed for nonlinear complementarity problems. The method improves the noninterior continuation methods recently studied by Burke and Xu [1] and Xu [29]. Our definition of neighborhood for the central path is simpler and more natural. In addition, our continuation method is based on a broader class of smooth functions introduced by Chen and Mangasarian [7]. The method is shown to be globally linearly and locally quadratically convergent under suitable assumptions. 1 Introduction Let F : R n ! R n be a continuously differentiable function. The nonlinear complementarity problem (NCP) is to find (x; y) 2 R n \Theta R n such that F (x) \Gamma y = 0; (1) x 0; y 0; x T y = 0: (2) Numerous methods have been developed to solve the NCP, for a comprehensive survey see [13, 23]. In this paper, we are interested in developing a noninterior continuation method for the NCP and analyzing its rate of convergence. Department of Management and ...

In this paper, we propose a continuation method for box constrained variational inequality problems. The continuation method is based on the class of GabrielMor'e smooth functions and has the following attractive features: It can start from any point; It has a simple and natural neighborhood definition; It solves only one approximate Newton equation at each iteration; It converges globally linearly and locally quadratically under nondegeneracy assumption at the solution point and other suitable assumptions. A hybrid method is also presented, which is shown to preserve the above convergence properties without the nondegeneracy assumption at the solution point. In particular, the hybrid method converges finitely for affine problems. 1 Introduction Let F : R n ! R n be a continuously differentiable function. Let l 2 fR [ \Gamma1g n and u 2 fR [1g n such that l ! u. The variational inequality problem (VIP) with box constraints, denoted by VIP(l; u; F ), is to find x 2 [l; u] such...

A new class of continuation methods is presented which, in particular, solve linear complementarity problems with copositiveplus and L matrices. Let a# b 2 R be nonnegativevectors. Weembed the complementarity problem with a continuously differentiable mapping f : R in an artificial system of F (x# y)=(a#ib) and (x# y) 0 # () where F : R is defined by F (x# y)=(x 1 y 1 # ...#x n y n # y ; f(x)) and 0 and i 0 are parameters. A pair (x# y) is a solution of the complementarity problem if and only if it solves ()for = 0 and i = 0. A general idea of continuation methods founded on the system () is as follows.
