Revised Pursuit Algorithm for Solving Non-stationary Linear Programming Problems on Modern Computing Clusters with Manycore Accelerators

Conference paper
Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 687)


This paper is devoted to the new edition of the parallel Pursuit algorithm proposed the authors in previous works. The Pursuit algorithm uses Fejer’s mappings for building pseudo-projection on polyhedron. The algorithm tracks changes in input data and corrects the calculation process. The previous edition of the algorithm assumed using a cube-shaped pursuit region with the number of K cells in one dimension. The total number of cells is \(K^n\), where n is the problem dimension. This resulted in high computational complexity of the algorithm. The new edition uses a cross-shaped pursuit region with one cross-bar per dimension. Such a region consists of only \(n(K-1)+1\) cells. The new algorithm is intended for cluster computing system with Xeon Phi processors.
