Further development of multiple centrality correctors for interior point methods. (English) Zbl 1168.90643
Summary: This paper addresses the role of centrality in the implementation of interior point methods. We provide theoretical arguments to justify the use of a symmetric neighbourhood, and translate them into computational practice leading to a new insight into the role of re-centering in the implementation of interior point methods. Second-order correctors, such as Mehrotra’s predictor-corrector, can occasionally fail: we derive a remedy to such difficulties from a new interpretation of multiple centrality correctors. Through extensive numerical experience we show that the proposed centrality correcting scheme leads to noteworthy savings over second-order predictor-corrector technique and previous implementations of multiple centrality correctors.
