AbstractIn continuous variable, smooth, nonconvex nonlinear programming, we analyze the complexity of checking whether(a)a given feasible solution is not a local minimum, and(b)the objective function is not bounded below on the set of feasible solutions. We construct a special class of indefinite quadratic programs, with simple constraints and integer data, and show that checking (a) or (b) on this class is NP-complete. As a corollary, we show that checking whether a given integer square matrix… Expand
The Inverse Problems of some Mathematical Programming Problems
This paper shows that the inverse problem of determining a KKT point of the non-convex quadratic programming is polynomial and proves the CoNP=NP, and solves an open question raised by Heuberger on inverse NP-hard problems. Expand
Undecidability and hardness in mixed-integer nonlinear programming
This work surveys two aspects of mixed-integer nonlinear programming and concludes that it is not a solvable class: instead, its formal sentences belong to two different theories, one of which is decidable while the other is not. Expand
This paper presents a canonical duality approach to solve an integer quadratic programming problem, in which the objective function is quadratic and each variable may assume the value of one ofExpand
Solving Standard Quadratic Optimization Problems via Linear, Semidefinite and Copositive Programming
This paper shows how to approximate the optimal solution by approximating the cone of copositive matrices via systems of linear inequalities, and, more refined, linear matrix inequalities (LMI's). Expand
Nonconvex min–max fractional quadratic problems under quadratic constraints: copositive relaxations
Empirical evidence is shown that lower bounds provided by the copositive relaxation are able to substantially speed up a well known solver in obtaining the optimality certificate. Expand
Copositive realxation for genera quadratic programming
We consider general, typically nonconvex, Quadratic programming Problem. The Semidefinite relaxation proposed by Shor provides bounds on the optimal solution, but it does not always provideExpand

This work investigates the use of interior algorithms, especially the affine-scaling algorithm, to solve nonconvex — indefinite or negative definite — quadratic programming (QP) problems and shows that the problem with an ellipsoidal constraint is “easy”. Expand
The bounds of feasible space on constrained nonconvex quadratic programming
This paper presents a method to estimate the bounds of the radius of the feasible space for a class of constrained nonconvex quadratic programmings. Results show that one may compute a bound of theExpand
Copositivity and constrained fractional quadratic problems
Based on these formulations, Semidefinite Programming relaxations are derived for finding good lower bounds to these fractional programs, which can be used in a global optimization branch-and-bound approach. Expand
