Distributed Throughput Maximization in Wireless Networks via Random Power Allocation
—We develop a distributed throughput-optimal power allocation algorithm in wireless networks. The study of this problem has been limited due to the nonconvexity of the underlying...

Optimal Estimation of Vanishing Points in a Manhattan World
In this paper, we present an analytical method for computing the globally optimal estimates of orthogonal vanishing points in a “Manhattan world” with a calibrated camera. We ...

A New Sequential Optimality Condition for Constrained Optimization and Algorithmic Consequences
Necessary first-order sequential optimality conditions provide adequate theoretical tools to justify stopping criteria for nonlinear programming solvers. These conditions are sati...

On the global optimum of planar, range-based robot-to-robot relative pose estimation
Abstract— In this paper, we address the problem of determining the relative position and orientation (pose) of two robots navigating in 2D, based on known egomotion and noisy rob...

Optimality Conditions for Irregular Inequality-Constrained Problems
Abstract. We consider feasible sets given by conic constraints, where the cone defining the constraints is convex with nonempty interior. We study the case where the feasible set i...
