Is a linear function convex ???

Region above a convex function is a convex set.

- Objective function to be minimized/maximized.
- Constraints to be satisfied.

Hmmm

ICE CREAM !!

Non-Convex Quadratic Programming Problem !!!

Redefine x in homogenous coordinates.

Nothing left to do ….

but Pray

Note that we have squared the number of variables.

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

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

Max Cut problem can be written as

Naah !! Let’s get it into the standard quadratic form.

X - xxT >= 0

Minimize yTM0y

Subject to yTMiy < = 0

Remember

Y = [1 xT; x X]

Minimize M0 Y

Subject to Mi Y < = 0

Y >= 0

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.

Minimize yTM0y

Subject to yTMiy < = 0

Minimize Q0 X + 2q0Tx + r0

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

Cj (X - xxT) >= 0

Cj C

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

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

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

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

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

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 =

(i,j) E

ei = [0 0 …. 1 0 …0]

uij = ei + ej
