We study and compare preconditioners available for network interior point methods. We derive upper bounds for the condition number of the preconditioned matrices used in the solution of systems of linear equations defining the algorithm search directions. The preconditioners are tested using PDNET, a state-of-the-art interior point code for the minimum cost(More)
Interior–point algorithms are among the most efficient techniques for solving complementarity problems. In this paper, a procedure for globalizing interior–point algorithms by using the maximum stepsize is introduced. The algorithm combines exact or inexact interior–point and projected–gradient search techniques and employs a line–search procedure for the(More)
