It is shown that essentially all primal—dual interior-point algorithms for LP can be extended easily to the general setting of convex optimization problems, and makes a very strong connection to quasi-Newton methods by expressing the square of the symmetric primal-dual linear transformation as a quasi- newton update in the case of the least sophisticated framework.

Interior-point methods for unconstrained geometric programming and scaling problems
The condition numbers are natural geometric quantities associated with the Newton polytope of the geometric program, and lead to diameter bounds on approximate minimizers, which generalize the iteration complexity of recent interior-point methods for matrix scaling and matrix balancing. Expand
An interior point-proximal method of multipliers for convex quadratic programming
This paper combines an infeasible Interior Point Method (IPM) with the Proximal Method of Multipliers (PMM) and shows that IP-PMM inherits the polynomial complexity of IPMs, as well as the strict convexity of the PMM sub-problems. Expand
Optimization on linear matrix inequalities for polynomial systems control
Many problems of systems control theory boil down to solving polynomial equations, polynomial inequalities or polyomial differential equations. Recent advances in convex optimization and realExpand
Interior-point methods
This work reviews some of the key developments in the modern era of interior-point methods, including comments on both the complexity theory and practical algorithms for linear programming, semide nite programming, monotone linear complementarity, and convex programming over sets that can be characterized by self-concordant barrier functions.

Primal-Dual Interior-Point Methods for Self-Scaled Cones
This paper presents efficiency estimates for several symmetric primal-dual methods that can loosely be classified as path-following methods for convex programming problems expressed in conic form when the cone and its associated barrier are self-scaled. Expand
