The era of interior point methods (IPMs) was initiated by N. Karmarkar's 1984 paper, which triggered turbulent research and reshaped almost all areas of optimization theory and computational practice. This book offers comprehensive coverage of IPMs. It details the main results of more than a decade of IPM research. Numerous exercises are provided to aid in understanding the material.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:"The second edition of this successful book on interior point methods for linear optimization appears eight years after the first one. It presents a unified framework for these algorithms and it is a comprehensive treatment of linear optimization from the perspective of interior point methods. . The presentation is clear and comprehensible, but concise, it comes along with many examples and illustrations . . Almost all aspects of interior point methods are discussed in this highly recommendable book . ." (Petra Huhn, Mathematical Methods of Operations Research, Vol. 65 (1), 2007)
