This paper indicates the possible difficulties for applying the interior point method to NP-complete problems, transforms an NP-complete problem into a nonconvex quadratic program and then develops some convexity theories for it. Lastly it proposes an algorithm which uses Karmarkar's algorithm as a subroutine. The finite convergence of this algorithm is also proved.
