On Exploiting Problem Structure in a Basis Identification Procedure for Linear Programming

Erling D. Andersen
1999 INFORMS journal on computing  
However, in many practical applications of LP, interior-point methods have the drawback that they do not generate an optimal basic and nonbasic partition of the variables.  ...  During the last decade interior-point methods have become an e cient alternative to the simplex algorithm for solution of large-scale linear programming (LP) problems.  ...  In each iteration of a primal-dual interior-point method, a guess (x;ŷ;ŝ) 2 R n ++ R m R n ++ for the primal and dual optimal solution is generated.  ...
