In this paper, we derive an unconstrained convex programming approach to solving convex quadratic programming problems in standard form. Related duality theory is established by using two simple inequalities. An -optimal solution is obtained by solving an unconstrained dual convex program. A dual-to-primal conversion formula is also provided. Some preliminary computational results of using a curved search method is included.
