Global optimizers handling minimization of expressions like $\log{v}+\frac{1}{v}$

Consider the simple problem of maximum likelihood estimation of the variance of a mean zero normal distribution. The expression to be minimised is: $$N \log{v}+\frac{1}{v}\sum_{n=1}^N{b_n^2},$$ where $...

Global optimizers handling minimization of an expression arising from the likelihood of a multivariate normal

I am interested in converting the following optimisation problem into a form that an exponential cone and/or SDP solver such as MOSEK can handle. This is a multivariate version of the question I ...
