In this paper, we consider a primal-dual interior point method for solving nonlinear semidefinite programming problems. We propose primal-dual interior point methods based on the unscaled and scaled Newton methods, which correspond to the AHO, HRVW/KSH/M and NT search directions in linear SDP problems. We analyze local behavior of our proposed methods and show their local and superlinear convergence properties.
