Superlinearly convergent algorithms for solving singular equations and smooth reformulations of complementarity problems
 SIAM J. Optim
"... Abstract. We propose a new algorithm for solving smooth nonlinear equations in the case where their solutions can be singular. Compared to other techniques for computing singular solutions, a distinctive feature of our approach is that we do not employ second derivatives of the equation mapping in t ..."

Projective Transformations for Interior Point Algorithms, and a Superlinearly Convergent Algorithm for the WCenter Problem
"... The purpose of this study is to broaden the scope of projective transformation methods in mathematical programming, both in terms of theory and algorithms. We start by generalizing the concept of the analytic center of a polyhedral system of constraints to the wcenter of a polyhedral system, which ..."

Optimization Flow Control, I: Basic Algorithm and Convergence
 IEEE/ACM TRANSACTIONS ON NETWORKING
, 1999
"... We propose an optimization approach to flow control where the objective is to maximize the aggregate source utility over their transmission rates. We view network links and sources as processors of a distributed computation system to solve the dual problem using gradient projection algorithm. In thi ..."

, 2006
"... Algorithms for discrete energy minimization are of fundamental importance in computer vision. In this paper we focus on the recent technique proposed by Wainwright et al. [33] treereweighted maxproduct message passing (TRW). It was inspired by the problem of maximizing a lower bound on the energy ..."

Algorithms for Nonnegative Matrix Factorization
 In NIPS
, 2001
"... Nonnegative matrix factorization (NMF) has previously been shown to be a useful decomposition for multivariate data. Two different multiplicative algorithms for NMF are analyzed. They differ only slightly in the multiplicative factor used in the update rules. One algorithm can be shown to minim ..."
