Karl Lieberherr and Steve Vavasis: computing P-optimal thresholds

In the eighties, when Steve was a sophomore at Princeton, we wrote a paper on how to approximate the P-optimal thresholds using linear programming.

Paper.

Discussion: We need the full technical report from Princeton that contains the proofs. Here it is: http://www.ccs.neu.edu/research/demeter/biblio/vavasis-tr302.html
