Inequality constrained minimization problems are often solved by considering a sequence of parameterized barrier functions. Each barrier function is approximately minimized and the relevantâ€¦ (More)

A new primal-dual algorithm is proposed for the minimization of non-convex objective functions subject to simple bounds and linear equality constraints. The method alternates between a classicalâ€¦ (More)

A new primal-dual algorithm is proposed for the minimization of non-convex objective functions subject to general inequality and linear equality constraints. The method uses a primal-dualâ€¦ (More)

Ten years ago, the broad consensus among researchers in constrained optimization was that sequential quadratic programming (SQP) methods were the methods of choice. While, in the long term, thisâ€¦ (More)

This paper describes a scalable reconfigurable computing system using a Silicon circuit board (SiCB) design approach. The design involves attachment of unpackaged FPGA and memory die to wafer scaleâ€¦ (More)
