Abstract: We consider the interior-point approach to sensitivity analysis in linear programming (LP) developed by the authors. We investigate the quality of the interior-point bounds under degeneracy. In the case of a special degeneracy, we show that these bounds have the same nice relationship with the optimal partition bounds as in the nondegenerate case. We prove a weaker relationship for general degenerate LPs.

Keywords: linear programming, sensitivity analysis, interior-point methods

Category 1: Linear, Cone and Semidefinite Programming (Linear Programming )
