This paper gives an O(n) algorithm for a singly constrained convex quadratic program using binary search to solve the Kuhn-Tucker system. Computational results indicate that a randomized version of this algorithm runs in expected linear time and is suitable for practical applications. For the nonconvex case anε-approximate algorithm is proposed which is based on convex and piecewise linear approximations of the objective function.
