### MINLP involving integrals, sparse matrices and CDF of random variables. Best environment?

INTRODUCTION My research often involves solving MINLP problems with few constraints (usually two) and not many variables (say between one and three integer ones, and between one and five real-valued ...

### Is it always possible to optimize a multivariate function sequentially?

Suppose we have a multivariate function like $f(x,y,z)$ which should be maximized with the constraints $g_i(x,y,z)\le 0 \quad \forall i$. The general rule is to use KKT conditions and derive all KKT ...

### Subtracting Values from a Positive semidefinite Matrix in a Semidefinite Program

I'm trying to construct an SDP relaxation for a non-convex quadratic program ($x^{\intercal}\mathbf{H}x$) with the following objective function: x_{11}y_{11} + x_{12}y_{12} + x_{21}y_{...

### Prove NP Hardness for non-convex multi-objective optimization

The multi-objective optimization problem in my case is non-linear as it consists of three objective function of which two are nonlinear function and the third is a linear function. Lets say objective ...

### Maximization of a differentiable and nonlinear function over a bounded space

I have a nonlinear bi-variate optimization problem like $\max \: f(x,y)$ where $f(x,y)$ is a nonlinear and differentiable function of both variables, and $0\le x\le 1$, $\:0\le y \le ub$. In order to ...

### Two equivalent soft constraint implementations

Take the following optimization problem: \begin{align}\min_x&\quad f(x)\\\text{s.t.}&\quad g(x)\le0\end{align} with $f$ and $g$ nonlinear functions. Suppose I want to relax the constraint by ...
