Convex Programming

- Convex optimization function
- Convex feasible region
- Why is it so important ???

- Global optimum can be found in polynomial time.

- Many practical problems are convex

- Non-convex problems can be relaxed to convex ones.

Second Order Cone

- || u || < t
- u - vector of dimension ‘d-1’
- t - scalar
- Cone lies in ‘d’ dimensions
- Second Order Cone defines a convex set

- Example: Second Order Cone in 3D

x2 + y2 <= z2

Affine mapping of SOC

Second Order Cone ProgrammingMinimize fTx

Subject to || Ai x+ bi || <= ciT x + di

i = 1, … , L

Constraints are SOC of ni dimensions

Feasible regions are intersections of conic regions

Why SOCP ??

- A more general convex problem than LP
- LP SOCP
- Fast algorithms for finding global optimum
- LP - O(n3)
- SOCP - O(L1/2) iterations of O(n2∑ni)
- Many standard problems are SOCP-able

SOCP-able Problems

- Convex quadratically constrained quadratic programming
- Sum of norms
- Maximum of norms
- Problems with hyperbolic constraints

SOCP-able Problems

QCQP

Subject to xT Pi x + 2 qiT x + ri

Pi >= 0

|| P01/2 x + P0-1/2 x ||2 + r0 -q0TP0-1p0

QCQP

Minimize xT P0 x + 2 q0T x + r0

Subject to xT Pi x + 2 qiT x + ri

Minimize t

Subject to || P01/2 x + P0-1/2 x || < = t

|| P01/2 x + P0-1/2 x || < = (r0 -q0TP0-1p0)1/2

Linear Programming on Semidefinite Matrices

Why SDP ??

- A more general convex problem than SOCP
- LP SOCP SDP
- Generality comes at a cost though
- SOCP - O(L1/2) iterations of O(n2∑ni)
- SDP - O((∑ni)1/2) iterations of O(n2∑ni2)
- Many standard problems are SDP-able

SDP-able Problems

- Minimizing the maximum eigenvalue
- Class separation with ellipsoids

SDP-able Problems

- Minimizing the maximum eigenvalue
- Class separation with ellipsoids

Minimizing the Maximum Eigenvalue

Matrix M(z)

To find vector z* such that max is minimized.

Let max(M(z)) <= n

max(M(z)-nI) <= 0

min(nI - M(z)) >= 0

nI - M(z) >= 0

Minimizing the Maximum Eigenvalue

Matrix M(z)

To find vector z* such that max is minimized.

Max -n

nI - M(z) >= 0

SDP-able Problems

- Minimizing the maximum eigenvalue
- Class separation with ellipsoids

Non-Convex Problems

Minimize xTQ0x + 2q0Tx + r0

Subject to xTQix + 2qiTx + ri < = 0

Qi >= 0

=> Convex

Non-Convex Quadratic Programming Problem !!!

Redefine x in homogenous coordinates.

y = (1; x)

Non-Convex Problems

Minimize xTQ0x + 2q0Tx + r0

Subject to xTQix + 2qiTx + ri < = 0

Minimize yTM0y

Subject to yTMiy < = 0

Mi = [ ri qiT; qi Qi]

Non-Convex Problems

- Problem is NP-hard.
- Let’s relax the problem to make it convex.

No donut for you !!!

SDP RelaxationMinimize yTM0y

Subject to yTMiy < = 0

Minimize M0 Y

Subject to Mi Y < = 0

Y = yyT

SDP Relaxation

Minimize yTM0y

Subject to yTMiy < = 0

Minimize M0 Y

Subject to Mi Y < = 0

Y >= 0

Nothing left to do ….

but Pray

Note that we have squared the number of variables.

Example - Max Cut

- Graph: G=(V,E)
- Maximum-Cut

Example - Max Cut

- Graph: G=(V,E)
- Maximum-Cut

Alright !!! So it’s an integer programming problem !!!

Doesn’t look like quadratic programming to me !!!

Max Cut problem can be written as

Max Cut as an IQPNaah !! Let’s get it into the standard quadratic form.

SOCP Relaxation

Minimize yTM0y

Subject to yTMiy < = 0

Remember

Y = [1 xT; x X]

Minimize M0 Y

Subject to Mi Y < = 0

Y >= 0

SOCP Relaxation

Say you’re given C = { C1, C2, … Cn} such that Cj >= 0

Cj (X - xxT) >= 0

(Ux)T (Ux) <= Cj X

Wait .. Isn’t this a hyperbolic constraint

Therefore, it’s SOCP-able.

SOCP Relaxation

Minimize yTM0y

Subject to yTMiy < = 0

Minimize Q0 X + 2q0Tx + r0

Subject to Qi X + 2qiTx + ri < = 0

Cj (X - xxT) >= 0

Cj C

SOCP Relaxation

If C is the infinite set of all semidefinite matrices

SOCP Relaxation = SDP Relaxation

If C is finite,

SOCP relaxation is ‘looser’ than SDP relaxation.

Then why SOCP relaxation ???

Efficiency - Accuracy Tradeoff

Choice of C

Remember we had squared the number of variables.

Let’s try to reduce them with our choice of C.

For a general problem - Kim and Kojima

Using the structure of a specific problem -

e.g. Muramatsu and Suzuki for Max Cut

Choice of C

Minimize cT x

Subject to Qi X + 2qiTx + ri < = 0

Q X + 2qTx + r <= 0

Q = n i uiuiT

Let1 >= 2 >= …. k >=0 >= k+1 >=n

Choice of C

Q+ = k i uiuiT

C =

Q X + 2qTx + r <= 0

xT Q+ x - Q+ X <= 0

xT Q+ x + k+1i uiuiT X + 2qTx + r <= 0

zi

Choice of C

Q+ = k i uiuiT

C =

uiuiT i = k+1, k+2, … n

Q X + 2qTx + r <= 0

xT Q+ x + k+1i zi+ 2qTx + r <= 0

xTuiuiTx - uiuiT X <= 0

Choice of C

Q+ = k i uiuiT

C =

uiuiT i = k+1, k+2, … n

Q X + 2qTx + r <= 0

xT Q+ x + k+1i zi+ 2qTx + r <= 0

xTuiuiTx - zi <= 0

i = 1, … , |V|

C =

uij uijT

(i,j) E

vij vijT

(i,j) E

Specific Problem Example - Max Cutei = [0 0 …. 1 0 …0]

uij = ei + ej

vij = ei - ej

Specific Problem Example - Max Cut
