# Introduction

Interior point methods are a type of algorithms that are used in solving both linear and nonlinear convex optimization problems.convex optimization problems that contain inequalities as constraints.The Interior-Point method relies on having a linear programming model with the objective function and all constraints being continuous and twice continuously differentiable.
