We present a generalization of a homogeneous selfdual linear programming (LP) algorithm to solving the monotone complementarity problem (MCP). The algorithm does not need to use any "bigM" parameter or twophase method, and it generates either a solution converging towards feasibility and complementarity simultaneously or a certificate proving infeasibility. Moreover, if the MCP is polynomially solvable with an interior feasible starting point, then it can be polynomially solved without using or knowing such information at all. To our knowledge, this is the first interiorpoint and infeasiblestarting algorithm for solving the MCP that possesses these desired features. Preliminary computational results are presented. Key words: Monotone complementarity problem, homogeneous and selfdual, infeasiblestarting algorithm. Running head: A homogeneous algorithm for MCP.

How to initialize an algorithm to solve an optimization problem is of great theoretical and practical importance. In the simplex method for linear programming this issue is resolved by either the twophase approach or using the socalled big M technique. In the interior point method, there is a more elegant way to deal with the initialization problem, viz. the selfdual embedding technique proposed by Ye, Todd and Mizuno [30]. For linear programming this technique makes it possible to identify an optimal solution or conclude the problem to be infeasible/unbounded by solving its embedded selfdual problem. The embedded selfdual problem has a trivial initial solution and has the same structure as the original problem. Hence, it eliminates the need to consider the initialization problem at all. In this paper, we extend this approach to solve general conic convex programming, including semidefinite programming. Since a nonlinear conic convex programming problem may lack the socalled stri...
Superlinear Convergence Of An Algorithm For Monotone Linear Complementarity Problems, When No Strictly Complementary Solution Exists

A new predictorcorrector interior point algorithm for solving monotone linear complementarity problems (LCP) is proposed, and it is shown to be superlinearly convergent with at least order 1.5, even if the LCP has no strictly complementary solution. Unlike Mizuno's recent algorithm [16], the fast local convergence is attained without any need for estimating the optimal partition. In the special case that a strictly complementary solution does exist, the order of convergence becomes quadratic. The proof relies on an investigation of the asymptotic behavior of first and second order derivatives that are associated with trajectories of weighted centers for LCP.

h is sufficient for the boundedness of the solution set F , see Mangasarian [3]. Corollary 3 in Ye [6] states that the existence of such x and s is also necessary in the case of monotone LCPs with a socalled negative qvalue. To see that it is necessary in general, suppose that there exist no such positive solution pair (x; s). Then, by Carver's theorem [1], there exists a direction u 6= 0 such that M T u 0; u 0; h T u 0: If h T u ! 0 then F = ;, by Farkas' lemma. Suppose now that there exist (x ; s ) 2 F , and consequently h T u = 0. Since u 0 and M T u 0, w
