(:description Homework on Interior Point Methods for Nonlinear Programming including a number of exercises.:)

Interior point methods or barrier methods are a certain class of algorithms to solve linear and nonlinear convex optimization problems. Violation of inequality constraints are prevented by augmenting the objective function with a barrier term that causes the optimal unconstrained value to be in the feasible space.
