An Efficient Primal–Dual Interior Point Method for Linear Programming Problems Based on a New Kernel Function with a Trigonometric Barrier Term
In this paper, we present a primal–dual interior point method for linear optimization problems based on a new efficient kernel function with a trigonometric barrier term. We derive the complexity bounds for large and small-update methods, respectively. We obtain the best known complexity bound for large update, which improves significantly the so far obtained complexity results based on a trigonometric kernel function given by Peyghami et al. The results obtained in this paper are the first to reach this goal.
