Unformatted text preview: Lecture 23 Non-Simplex Steps UCSD Math 171A: Numerical Optimization Philip E. Gill http://ccom.ucsd.edu/~peg/math171 Monday, March 9th, 2009 Recap: Starting at a non-vertex A simple modification of the simplex method allows us to: 1 Start at a feasible point that is not necessarily a vertex. 2 Solve problems that may not have a vertex solution. The modification is to add temporary bound constraints to define a fake vertex. At an arbitrary (feasible) x we add temporary bound constraints: x i ( x ) i i.e., e T i x ( x ) i UCSD Center for Computational Mathematics Slide 2/44, Monday, March 9th, 2009 Example 1: minimize 2 x 1 + x 2 subject to the constraints: constraint #1: x 1 + x 2 1 constraint #2: x 2 constraint #3: x 1 constraint #4:- x 1 - 2 constraint #5:- x 1 + x 2 - 2 In all-inequality form, we have min c T x subject to Ax b , where c = 2 1 ! , A = 1 1 1 1- 1- 1 1 , b = 1- 2- 2 UCSD Center for Computational Mathematics Slide 3/44, Monday, March 9th, 2009 x 1 x 2 x * #3 #1 #2 #5 #4 Apply the simplex method for all-inequality form. Start at the interior point x = 3 2 1 2 ! . At x , we have A ( x ) = , so no constraints are active. Add the temporary bounds: constraint #6: x 1 3 2 constraint #7: x 2 1 2 If W = { 6 , 7 } , then A = 1 1 ! , b = 3 2 1 2 !

A p =- e 1 1 0 0 1 ! p =- 1 ! p =- 1 !
