ABSTRACT. This paper describes a software package, called LOQO, which implements a primaldual interiorpoint method for general nonlinear programming. We focus in this paper mainly on the algorithm as it applies to linear and quadratic programming with only brief mention of the extensions to convex and general nonlinear programming, since a detailed paper describing these extensions were published recently elsewhere. In particular, we emphasize the importance of establishing and maintaining symmetric quasidefiniteness of the reduced KKT system. We show that the industry standard MPS format can be nicely formulated in such a way to provide quasidefiniteness. Computational results are included for a variety of linear and quadratic programming problems. 1.

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...

Abstract. Most local convergence analyses of the sequential quadratic programming (SQP) algorithm for nonlinear programming make strong assumptions about the solution, namely, that the active constraint gradients are linearly independent and that there are no weakly active constraints. In this paper, we establish a framework for variants of SQP that retain the characteristic superlinear convergence rate even when these assumptions are relaxed, proving general convergence results and placing some recently proposed SQP variants in this framework. We discuss the reasons for which implementations of SQP often continue to exhibit good local convergence behavior even when the assumptions commonly made in the analysis are violated. Finally, we describe a new algorithm that formalizes and extends standard SQP implementation techniques, and we prove convergence results for this method also.

Most asymptotic convergence analysis of interiorpoint algorithms for monotone linear complementarity problems assumes that the problem is nondegenerate, that is, the solution set contains a strictly complementary solution. We investigate the behavior of these algorithms when this assumption is removed. 1 Introduction In the monotone linear complementarity problem (LCP), we seek a vector pair (x; y) 2 IR n \Theta IR n that satisfies the conditions y = Mx+ q; x 0; y 0; x T y = 0; (1) where q 2 IR n , and M 2 IR n\Thetan is positive semidefinite. We use S to denote the solution set of (1). An assumption that is frequently made in order to prove superlinear convergence of interiorpoint algorithms for (1) is the nondegeneracy assumption: Assumption 1 There is an (x ; y ) 2 S such that x i + y i ? 0 for all i = 1; \Delta \Delta \Delta ; n. In general, we can define three subsets B, N , and J of the index set f1; \Delta \Delta \Delta ; ng by B = fi = 1; \Delta ...

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 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].

We describe an algorithm for the monotone linear complementarity problem (LCP) that converges from any positive, not necessarily feasible, starting point and exhibits polynomial complexity if some additional assumptions are made on the starting point. If the problem has a strictly complementary solution, the method converges subquadratically. We show that the algorithm and its convergence properties extend readily to the mixed monotone linear complementarity problem and, hence, to all the usual formulations of the linear programming and convex quadratic programming problems. 1 Introduction The monotone linear complementarityproblem (LCP) is to find a vector pair (x; y) 2 IR n \ThetaIR n such that y = Mx+ q; (x; y) 0; x T y = 0; (1) where q 2 IR n and M is an n \Theta n positive semidefinite (p.s.d.) matrix. The mixed monotone linear complementarity problem (MLCP) is to find a vector triple (x; y; z) 2 IR n \Theta IR n \Theta IR m such that " y 0 # = " M 11 M 12 ...

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...

The MizunoToddYe predictorcorrector algorithm for linear programming is extended for solving monotone linear complementarity problems from infeasible starting points. The proposed algorithm requires two matrix factorizations and at most three backsolves per iteration. Its computational complexity depends on the quality of the starting point. If the starting points are large enough then the algorithm has O(nL) iteration complexity. If a certain measure of feasibility at the starting point is small enough then the algorithm has O( p nL) iteration complexity. At each iteration both "feasibility' and "optimality" are reduced exactly at the same rate. The algorithm is quadratically convergent for problems having a strictly complementary solution, and therefore its asymptotic efficiency index is p 2. A variant of the algorithm can be used to detect whether solutions with norm less than a given constant exist. . Key Words:linear complementarity problems, predictorcorrector, infeasib...
