### Abstract

We present a generalization of a homogeneous self-dual linear programming (LP) algorithm to solving the monotone complementarity problem (MCP). The algorithm does not need to use any "big-M" parameter or two-phase 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 interior-point and infeasible-starting algorithm for solving the MCP that possesses these desired features. Preliminary computational results are presented. Key words: Monotone complementarity problem, homogeneous and self-dual, infeasible-starting algorithm. Running head: A homogeneous algorithm for MCP.
