Welcome to CONE World!

CONE World is a forum for discussion and dissemination of all aspects of computational methods to find optimal solutions to conic optimization, in particular second order cone (SOCP), problems.

Recently, general purpose conic programming algorithms have been implemented and have matured into reliable solution systems that can be connected to modeling systems. These new developments make the application of conic optimization methods available to users outside the narrow research community.

Conic optimization is a relatively new field and much work needs to be done to test the capabilities and robustness on real world models. We are interested in practical software (see CONE Solvers) and an ever growing, well maintained library of academic and practical client test problems in the CONE Library. Communication is supported by maintaining the Gams World Forum server and related links.

For other specialized topics in the area of mathematical programming consult the GAMS World.
