Komei Fukuda and I discovered the idea for reverse search during conversations in Tokyo in October 1990. We were working on the vertex enumeration problem for convex polyhedra. At the time I was visiting Masao Iri at the University of Tokyo and Masakazu Kojima at Tokyo Institute of Technology, supported by a JSPS/NSERC bilateral exchange. Komei was then working at the University of Tsukuba, Otsuka, which was a couple of subway stations from my office. So we met quite often. One day Komei visited me at my office in Todai and explained to me the criss-cross method for solving linear programs, independently developed by S. Zionts [11], T. Terlaky [8, 9] and Z. Wang [10]. In this method one pivots in the hyperplane arrangement generated by the constraints of the linear program, without regard for feasibility- thus differentiating it from the simplex method. Komei and Tomomi Matsui, a Ph.D. student at Tokyo Institute of Technology, had developed an elegant new proof of the convergence of the criss-cross method [6], which Komei was explaining to me. Komei had drawn a line-arrangement on the blackboard, along with the path the criss-cross method would take from any given vertex to the optimum vertex of the LP. On the board all of these edges were shown in yellow with directions that eventually

A general framework of nite algorithms is presented here for quadratic programming. This algorithm is a direct generalization of Van der Heyden's algorithm for the linear complementarity problem and Jensen's `relaxed recursive algorithm', which was proposed for solution of Oriented Matroid programming problems. The validity of this algorithm is proved the same way as the finiteness of the criss-cross method is proved. The second part of this paper contains a generalization of Edmonds-Fukuda pivoting rule for quadratic programming. This generalization can be considered as a finite version of Van de Panne - Whinston algorithm and so it is a simplex method for quadratic programming. These algorithms uses general combinatorial type ideas, so the same methods can be applied for oriented matroids as well. The generalization of these methods for oriented matroids is a subject of another paper.

In this paper the finite criss-cross method is generalized to solve hyperbolic programming problems. Just as in the case of linear or quadratic programming the criss-cross method can be initialized with any, not necessarily feasible basic solution. Finiteness of the procedure is proved under the usual mild assumptions. Some small numerical examples illustrate the main features of the algorithm.

### The Criss-Cross Method Can Take \Omega (nd) Pivots

, 2004

"... Abstract Using deformed products of arrangements, we construct a family of linear programs with ninequalities in! d on which, in the worst-case, the least-index criss-cross method requires \Omega (nd) (for fixed d) pivots to reach optimality. ..."
