IE417 Lecture 22 3 Feasible and Improving Directions Definition 1. Let S be a nonempty set in R n and let x * ∈ clS . The cone of feasible directions of S at x * is given by D = { d : d 6 = 0 and x * + λd ∈ S, ∀ λ ∈ (0 ,δ ) , ∃ δ > } Definition 2. Let S be a nonempty set in R n and let x * ∈ clS . Given a function f : R n → R , the cone of improving directions of f at x * is given by F = { d : f ( x * + λd ) < f ( x * ) ∀ λ ∈ (0 ,δ ) , ∃ δ > } IE417 Lecture 22 4 The Case of Linear Constraints • Consider the problem min f ( x ) s . t . Ax ≤ b Cx = d • The direction d is a feasible direction from the point x * if and only if A 1 d ≤ and Cd = 0 where A 1 are the constraints binding at x * . • If 5 f ( x * ) > d < , then d is an improving direction. IE417 Lecture 22 5 Generating Improving Feasible Directions (Linear Case) • We want to generate a direction for which – 5 f ( x * ) > d < – A 1 d ≤ – Cd = 0 • Idea : Solve the following optimization problem min 5 f ( x * ) > d s . t . A 1 d ≤ Cd = 0 • We also need a normalizing constraint. IE417 Lecture 22 6 Remember Way Back When...Remember Way Back When....
