Algorithms of iterative quadratic programming for optimal flow distribution problems


  • O. E. Kirik


The quadratic programming problem which serves as an auxiliary one in the solution of nonlinear flow distribution problems is reduced to an unconstrained dual problem with a continuously-differentiable piecewise quadratic objective function. Instead of maximization of this implicit function, consecutive maximization of the specific quadratic functions is developed. These functions are constructed in such a way that at the end of the iterative procedure, the coincidence of the obtained solution with the maximum point of the dual problem can be achieved.
