Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 3)


The problem of nonconvex quadratic programs is considered, and an algorithm is proposed to find the global minimum, solving the correspon ding linear complementarity problem. An application to the general complementarity problem and to 0–1 integer programming problems, is shown.
