# Applications and benchmarks for binary quadratic program algorithms

I have an algorithm that on all examples I was running finds an arbitrary approximation of global minimum of binary quadratic program. The algorithm find the minimum in polynomial time. Binary quadratic program is NP-complete, and I cannot prove theoretically, that the algorithm always finds the right solution (it always does in practice). The memory requirement for the algorithm is in current implementation $n^8$, where n is the dimension of the problem, it can be reduced to $n^4$ leading to possibility to solve the problem in about 50 dimensions, although running time is large - the algorithm have to solve the semi-definite program in $n^4$ dimension.

Question:
Is there any practical application this algorithm can be used?
What benchmarks tests should be performed to demonstrate practical usefulness of the algorithm?

I'm not sure I'm allowed to post the link, so you can find details of the algorithm, and its python implementation though the link in my profile, or here, if link works.

PS. I apologize if this is off topic question, I got algorithm by a complete chance, and have no idea where and how to communicate it.

PPS. I know it goes completely against the public opinion, but this is a testable objective, so give it a chance to survive, at least to the moment when it finds counterexample, or can be used as a practical application without a proof.

• Oh. I did not mean “Do not use the word BQP for other meanings than what I know!” Jan 31, 2011 at 20:18
• I was kicked to death by the experts, so I prefer to follow any expert's advise, that does not change meaning, to get something useful. Jan 31, 2011 at 20:27
• You could outline your idea here to give people an idea of what you are talking about. Also, your statement "if it cannot be proved it can be used" (from your blog) disturbs me. Jan 31, 2011 at 23:14
