Loraine is a MATLAB and Julia implementation of an interior point method algorithm for
linear semidefinite optimization problems. The special feature of Loraine is the iterative solver for
linear systems. This is to be used for problems with (very) low rank solution matrix.
Standard (non-low-rank) problems and linear programs can be solved using the direct solver;
then the user gets a standard IP method akin SDPT3.

POEMA (Polynomial Optimization,
Efficiency through Moments and Algebra) is a Marie
Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (2019-2023).
Its goal is to train scientists at the interplay of
algebra, geometry and computer science for polynomial
optimization problems and to foster scientific and
technological advances, stimulating interdisciplinary and
intersectoriality knowledge exchange between algebraists,
geometers, computer scientists and industrial actors
facing real-life optimization problems. The network partners are Inria, Sophia
Antipolis; CNRS, LAAS, Toulouse; Sorbonne Universite,
Paris; Artelys SA, Paris; NWO-I/CWI, Amsterdam; Univ.
Tilburg; Univ. Konstanz; Univ. Erlangen; Univ. degli Studi
di Firenze; Univ. of Birmingham; Univ. of Tromsoe. |

PENLAB a free open source MATLAB toolbox for nonlinear optimization, linear and nonlinear semidefinite optimization and any combination of these.
