Linear complementarity problem
Springer Online Journal Archives 1860-2000
Abstract There are many interior-point algorithms for LP (linear programming), QP (quadratic programming), and LCPs (linear complementarity problems). While the algebraic definitions of these problems are different from each other, we show that they are all of the same general form when we define the problems geometrically. We derive some basic properties related to such geometrical (monotone) LCPs and based on these properties, we propose and analyze a simple infeasible-interior-point algorithm for solving geometrical LCPs. The algorithm can solve any instance of the above classes without making any assumptions on the problem. It features global convergence, polynomial-time convergence if there is a solution that is “smaller” than the initial point, and quadratic convergence if there is a strictly complementary solution.
