|Abstract||The polynomiality of nonlinear separable convex (concave) optimization problems, on linear constraints with a matrix with “small” subdeterminants, and the polynomiality of such integer problems, provided the inteter linear version of such problems ins polynomial, is proven. This paper presents a general-purpose algorithm for converting procedures that solves linear programming problems. The conversion is polynomial for constraint matrices with polynomially bounded subdeterminants. Among the important corollaries of the algorithm is the extension of the polynomial solvability of integer linear programming problems with totally unimodular constraint matrix, to integer-separable convex programming. An algorithm for finding a ε-accurate optimal continuous solution to the nonlinear problem that is polynomial in log(1/ε) and the input size and the largest subdeterminant of the constraint matrix is also presented. These developments are based on proximity results between the continuous and integral optimal solutions for problems with any nonlinear separable convex objective function. The practical feature of our algorithm is that is does not demand an explicit representation of the nonlinear function, only a polynomial number of function evaluations on a prespecified grid.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
