Abstract


In this talk I will present two recent findings concerning the preconditioning of elliptic problems. The first result concerns preconditioning of elliptic problems with variable coefficient K by an inverse Laplacian. Here we show that there is a close relationship between the eigenvalues of the preconditioned system and K. 
The second results concern the problem on mixed form where K approaches zero. Here, we show a uniform inf-sup condition and corresponding robust preconditioning.

Abstract

Standard quadratic programs have numerous applications and play an important role in copositivity detection. We consider reformulating a standard quadratic program as a mixed integer linear programming (MILP) problem. We propose alternative MILP reformulations that exploit the specific structure of standard quadratic programs. We report extensive computational results on various classes of instances. Our experiments reveal that our MILP reformulations significantly outperform other global solution approaches. 
This is joint work with Jacek Gondzio.
