### PhD-level textbooks on linear programming

My graduate Linear Programming class uses Bertsimas & Tsitsiklis's Introduction to Linear Optimization. Are there any alternative texts that I could use to supplement this textbook (mainly the ...

### IPOPT with HSL vs MUMPS

What are the advantages (if any) of using IPOPT with HSL vs MUMPS? HSL has a reputation of being faster, but does it walk the walk? In particular, does HSL scale better for large-scale problems? We ...

### Simplest way to eliminate redundant constraints due to a new cut

I have a polyhedral set for constraining $x$: \begin{align} \mathcal{P} = \{x \in \mathbb{R}^n_{+} : \ Dx \leq d \} \end{align} where $D \in \mathbb{R}^{m \times n}, d \in \mathbb{R}^m$. I find the ...

### Convexity of a QP

In quadratic programming (QP), you encounter an objective of the following form: $$x^TQx + c^Tx$$ and often it's desirable to know if the QP is convex. One method to check for convexity is by ...

### Algorithms for sparse linear systems

I've long wondered this, but what is the algorithm(s) implemented in modern linear equation solvers for sparse systems? The obvious answer I can think of is Gauss-Jordan with a bunch of tricks to make ...

### Solving regularized least squares problem using black-box computation of $\mathbf{A}\mathbf{x}$ and $\mathbf{A}^T\mathbf{x}$

Let $\mathbf{A} \in \mathbb{R}^{n \times n}$. I'm working in a problem where I have a black-box algorithmic solution to compute the products $\mathbf{A}\mathbf{x}$ and $\mathbf{A}^T \mathbf{x}$ given ...
