Gill Winter Quarter 2009 Homework Assignment #2 Due Friday January 23, 2009 The starred exercises require the use of Matlab . Remember that it is necessary to do all the Matlab assignments to obtain credit for the class. Exercise 2.1. (a) Write the constraints x 1 + x 2 ≥ 4, x 1 + 3 x 2 ≥ 6, 6 x 1 x 2 ≤ 18, 3 ≤ x 2 ≤ 6 and x 1 ≥  1 in matrix form Ax ≥ b . After rearranging some of the constraints we find that A = 1 1 1 3 6 1 1 1 1 and b = 4 6 18 3 6 1 . (b) Draw the graphical representation of the feasible region defined by the constraints of part (a) . Mark the infeasible side of the halfspace defined by each constraint. Below is the graph with the feasible region. The vertices are A = ( 1 , 5) , B = (1 , 3) , C = (3 . 5 , 3) , D = (4 , 6) , E = ( 1 , 6) 1 2 3 4 5 61 1 2 3 4 5 feasible region A E B C D x 1 x 2 2 Mathematics 171A (c) Consider the linear function ‘ ( x ) = c T x where c T = (2 3). On your graph from part (a) , show the halfspace of descent directions emanating from the point ¯ x = (2 , 4). The linear function ‘ ( x ) = 8 = c T ¯ x is shown in the graph below. The halfspace of descent directions emanating from ¯ x is the space above this line. 1 2 3 4 5 61 1 2 3 4 5 feasible region A E B C D x 1 x 2 c ¯ x (d) Use the graphical method to minimize 2 x 1 3 x 2 subject to the constraints of part (a) . Give the optimal values of x 1 , x 2 and the minimum value of the objective function. If the objective level curve is shifted along the negative normal of ‘ ( x ) we find that the solution x * is located at E = ( 1 , 6) , which lies at the intersection of the hyperplanes defining the constraints x 1 ≥  1 and x 2 ≤ 6 . The minimum value of the objective is 2( 1) 3(6) = 20 . (e) Compute the residual vector r ( x ) for the constraints at the point ¯ x and find the con straints whose residuals would decrease after a positive step α along the direction p = 1 2 emanating from ¯ x ....
