Express equality constraint involving exponentials cones

The exponential cone is define such that $(x, y, z) \in \text{ExpCone: if } y \exp(x / y) \leq z \land y > 0.$ The inequality $\exp(a) \leq b$ can be expressed as $[a, 1, b] \in \text{ExpCone}$. ...

Extreme rays of a small polyhedral cone: How do I get them?

In a nutshell I have a small 2-dimensional polyhedral cone. $$C=\{(x_1,x_2): 2x_1-x_2 \leq 0, x_1+3x_2 \leq 0\}$$ I am looking for a simple, illustrative, procedure to get its extreme rays. Any ...

Separating hyperplanes for a convex cone

Let $W$ be a fixed matrix. Define $$\operatorname{pos}W \triangleq \{t \mid Wy =t , y≥ 0\}.$$ It is called the positive hull of $W$. It represents the set of right-hand sides that can be obtained by a ...

Intuition behind SOCP and why it sometimes can be solved more efficiently than without transforming it into a SOCP?

I was doing an assignment regarding turbine placements, where one has to write and solve a maximisation problem. As I was reading into the topic, I came across the fact that I could transform the ...

How to take the dual of a conic optimization problem?

Given a conic problem $$\min \{c^\top x \mid Ax \succeq_\mathit{C} b\}$$ for an arbitrary cone $C$, how can I construct the dual to the problem? Moreover, in Linear Programming one constructs the ...
