Summary: [For the entire collection see Zbl 0678.00013.]
It is shown that a projective algorithm based on the minimization of a potential function by a constrained Newton method is general enough to include other known projective methods for linear programming and fractional linear programming. It also provides a framework to analyze affine interior point methods and to relate them to projective methods.
