We present the convergence analysis of the inexact infeasible path-following (IIPF) interior-point algorithm. In this algorithm, the preconditioned conjugate gradient method is used to solve the reduced KKT system (the augmented system). The augmented system is preconditioned by using a block triangular matrix.
The KKT system is solved approximately. Therefore, it becomes necessary to study the convergence of the interior-point method for this specific inexact case. We present the convergence analysis of the inexact infeasible path-following (IIPF) algorithm, prove the global convergence of this method and provide complexity analysis.
