|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Karmarkar's algorithm article.|
Put into simpler english please!
Do you think any layman with a passing interest in super-computing can understand this? -- unsigned by 188.8.131.52, 1 July 2007
- Seconded. Mostly I am missing a section with examples. What is this algorithm good for in real life? --BjKa (talk) 11:08, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
An article about "Karmarkar's algorithm" under the heading "The Algorithm" should present Karmarkar's algorithm and not something else just because the real thing is "rather complicated".
I don't really feel confident enough about interior-point methods to write anything for the article... I _would_ feel ok trying to give an explanation of Karmarkar's algorithm here in the discussion section first for review by some senior mathematicians... Does anyone feel like volunteering for fact checking anything I might put together? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:39, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
This article is describing the affine-scaling algorithm, not Karmarkar's projective algorithm. Even the canonical form is lost, as are all the geometric ideas!
This is a better source.
