Description of Research
Dr. Barnes is interested in interior point methods for solving linear programming problems. These methods involve approximating the linear programming polytope by an ellipsoid. The ellipsoid approximation technique has a wide range of applications. He has used it to solve problems in statistics, numerical linear algebra, and in combinatorial optimization.
