. This paper describes a software package, called LOQO, which implements a primaldual interior-point 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. INTRODUCTION LOQO is a software package for solving general (smooth) nonlinear optimization problems. It implements an infeasible-primal-dual path-following method. For linear programming, such methods were first proposed independently by Lust...
