Abstract

Semidefinite programs (SDPs) can be solved in polynomial time by interior point meth- ods. However, when the dimension of the problem gets large, interior point methods become impractical in terms of both computational time and memory requirements. Certain first-order methods, such as Alternating Direction Methods of Multipliers (ADMMs), established as suitable algorithms to deal with large-scale SDPs and gained growing attention over the past decade. In this paper, we focus on an ADMM designed for SDPs in standard form and extend it to deal with inequalities when solving SDPs in general form. Beside numerical results on randomly generated instances, where we show that our method compares favorably with respect to the state-of-the-art solver SDPNAL+ (Yang et al. in Math Program Comput 7:331–366, 2015), we present results on instances from SDP relaxations of classical combinatorial problems such as the graph coloring problem and the maximum clique problem. Through extensive numerical experiments, we show that even an inaccurate dual solution, obtained at a generic iteration of our proposed ADMM, can represent an efficiently recovered valid bound on the optimal solution of the combinatorial problems considered, as long as an appropriate post-processing procedure is applied.
