Recall that the dual of a conic optimization problem is given by:

: Corresponds to variable \(s_l^x\).sux

Task.primalrepair
¶ void primalrepair (double[] wlc, double[] wuc, double[] wlx, double[] wux)
The function repairs a primal infeasible optimization problem by adjusting the bounds on the constraints and variables where the adjustment is computed as the minimal weighted sum of relaxations to the bounds on the constraints and variables. Observe the function only repairs the problem but does not solve it. If an optimal solution is required the problem should be optimized after the repair.
The function is applicable to linear and conic problems possibly with integer variables.
Observe that when computing the minimal weighted relaxation the termination tolerance specified by the parameters of the task is employed. For instance the parameter
iparam.mio_mode
can be used to make MOSEK ignore the integer constraints during the repair which usually leads to a much faster repair. However, the drawback is of course that the repaired problem may not have an integer feasible solution.Note the function modifies the task in place. If this is not desired, then apply the function to a cloned task.
Parameters:
(wlc
double
[]
) – \((w_l^c)_i\) is the weight associated with relaxing the lower bound on constraint \(i\). If the weight is negative, then the lower bound is not relaxed. Moreover, if the argument is NULL, then all the weights are assumed to be \(1\). (input)

[]

[]

Task.putmaxnumanz
¶ void putmaxnumanz (long maxnumanz)
Sets the number of preallocated nonzero entries in \(A\).
MOSEK stores only the nonzero elements in the linear coefficient matrix \(A\) and it cannot predict how much storage is required to store \(A\). Using this function it is possible to specify the number of nonzeros to preallocate for storing \(A\).
If the number of nonzeros in the problem is known, it is a good idea to set
maxnumanz
slightly larger than this number, otherwise a rough estimate can be used. In general, if \(A\) is inputted in many small chunks, setting this value may speed up the data input phase.It is not mandatory to call this function, since MOSEK will reallocate internal structures whenever it is necessary.
The function call has no effect if both
maxnumcon
andmaxnumvar
are zero.Parameters:
(maxnumanz
long
) – Number of preallocated nonzeros in \(A\). (input)Groups: Scalar variable data

Task.putmaxnumbarvar
¶ void putmaxnumbarvar (int maxnumbarvar)
Sets the number of preallocated symmetric matrix variables in the optimization task. When this number of variables is reached MOSEK will automatically allocate more space for variables.
It is not mandatory to call this function. It only gives a hint about the amount of data to preallocate for efficiency reasons.
Please note that
maxnumbarvar
must be larger than the current number of symmetric matrix variables in the task.Parameters:
(maxnumbarvar

Task.putmaxnumcon

Please note that

Task.putmaxnumcone

Please note that

Task.putmaxnumqnz
¶ void putmaxnumqnz (long maxnumqnz)
Sets the number of preallocated nonzero entries in quadratic terms.
MOSEK stores only the nonzero elements in \(Q\). Therefore, MOSEK cannot predict how much storage is required to store \(Q\). Using this function it is possible to specify the number nonzeros to preallocate for storing \(Q\) (both objective and constraints).
It may be advantageous to reserve more nonzeros for \(Q\) than actually needed since it may improve the internal efficiency of MOSEK, however, it is never worthwhile to specify more than the double of the anticipated number of nonzeros in \(Q\).
It is not mandatory to call this function, since MOSEK will reallocate internal structures whenever it is necessary.
Parameters:
(maxnumqnz
long
) – Number of nonzero elements preallocated in quadratic coefficient matrices. (input)Groups: Scalar variable data

Task.putmaxnumvar
¶ void putmaxnumvar (int maxnumvar)
Sets the number of preallocated variables in the optimization task. When this number of variables is reached MOSEK will automatically allocate more space for variables.
It is not mandatory to call this function. It only gives a hint about the amount of data to preallocate for efficiency reasons.
Please note that
maxnumvar

Task.putqcon
¶ void putqcon (int[] qcsubk, int[] qcsubi, int[] qcsubj, double[] qcval)
void putqcon (int numqcnz, int[] qcsubk, int[] qcsubi, int[] qcsubj, double[] qcval)
Replace all quadratic entries in the constraints. The list of constraints has the form
\[l_k^c \leq \half \sum_{i=0}^{\idxend{numvar}} \sum_{j=0}^{\idxend{numvar}} q_{ij}^k x_i x_j + \sum_{j=0}^{\idxend{numvar}} a_{kj} x_j \leq u_k^c, ~\ k=0,\ldots,m1.\]This function sets all the quadratic terms to zero and then performs the update:
\[q_{\mathtt{qcsubi[t]},\mathtt{qcsubj[t]}}^{\mathtt{qcsubk[t]}} = q_{\mathtt{\mathtt{qcsubj[t]},qcsubi[t]}}^{\mathtt{qcsubk[t]}} = q_{\mathtt{\mathtt{qcsubj[t]},qcsubi[t]}}^{\mathtt{qcsubk[t]}} + \mathtt{qcval[t]},\]for \(t=\idxbeg,\ldots,\idxend{numqcnz}\).
Please note that:
 For large problems it is essential for the efficiency that the function
Task.putmaxnumqnz
is employed to preallocate space.  Only the lower triangular parts should be specified because the \(Q\) matrices are symmetric. Specifying entries where \(i < j\) will result in an error.
 Only nonzero elements should be specified.
 The order in which the nonzero elements are specified is insignificant.
 Duplicate elements are added together as shown above. Hence, it is usually not recommended to specify the same entry multiple times.

\[q_{\mathtt{qosubi[t]},\mathtt{qosubj[t]}}^{o} = q_{\mathtt{\mathtt{qosubj[t]},qosubi[t]}}^{o} = q_{\mathtt{\mathtt{qosubj[t]},qosubi[t]}}^{o} + \mathtt{qoval[t]},\]for \(t=\idxbeg,\ldots,\idxend{numqonz}\).

\[q_{ij}^o = q_{ji}^o = \mathtt{qoij}.\]Only the elements in the lower triangular part are accepted. Setting \(q_{ij}\) with \(j>i\) will cause an error.

Task.solvewithbasis
¶ void solvewithbasis (int transp, ref int numnz, int[] sub, double[] val)
If a basic solution is available, then exactly \(numcon\) basis variables are defined. These \(numcon\) basis variables are denoted the basis. Associated with the basis is a basis matrix denoted \(B\). This function solves either the linear equation system
(2)¶\[B \barX = b\]or the system
(3)¶\[B^T \barX = b\]for the unknowns \(\barX\), with \(b\) being a userdefined vector. In order to make sense of the solution \(\barX\) it is important to know the ordering of the variables in the basis because the ordering specifies how \(B\) is constructed. When calling
Task.initbasissolve
an ordering of the basis variables is obtained, which can be used to deduce how MOSEK has constructed \(B\). Indeed if the \(k\)th basis variable is variable \(x_j\) it implies that\[B_{i,k} = A_{i,j}, ~i=\idxbeg,\ldots,\idxend{numcon}.\]Otherwise if the \(k\)th basis variable is variable \(x_j^c\) it implies that
\[\begin{split}B_{i,k} = \left\{ \begin{array}{ll} 1, & i = j, \\ 0 , & i \neq j. \\ \end{array} \right.\end{split}\]The function
Task.initbasissolve
must be called before a call to this function. Please note that this function exploits the sparsity in the vector \(b\) to speed up the computations.Parameters:
(transp
int
) – If this argument is zero, then (2) is solved, if nonzero then (3) is solved. (input)
(numnz
int
) – As input it is the number of nonzeros in \(b\). As output it is the number of nonzeros in \(\barX\). (input/output)
(sub
int
[]
) – As input it contains the positions of nonzeros in \(b\). As output it contains the positions of the nonzeros in \(\barX\). It must have room for \(numcon\) elements. (input/output)
(val
double
[]
) – As input it is the vector \(b\) as a dense vector (although the positions of nonzeros are specified insub
it is required that \(\mathtt{val}[i] = 0\) when \(b[i] = 0\)). As outputval
is the vector \(\barX\) as a dense vector. It must have length \(numcon\). (input/output)

Task.toconic
¶ void toconic ()
This function tries to reformulate a given Quadratically Constrained Quadratic Optimization problem (QCQP) as a Conic Quadratic Optimization problem (CQO). The first step of the reformulation is to convert the quadratic term of the objective function, if any, into a constraint. Then the following steps are repeated for each quadratic constraint:
 a conic constraint is added along with a suitable number of auxiliary variables and constraints;
 the original quadratic constraint is not removed, but all its coefficients are zeroed out.
Note that the reformulation preserves all the original variables.
The conversion is performed inplace, i.e. the task passed as argument is modified on exit. That also means that if the reformulation fails, i.e. the given QCQP is not representable as a CQO, then the task has an undefined state. In some cases, users may want to clone the task to ensure a clean copy is preserved.

Task.updatesolutioninfo
¶ void updatesolutioninfo (soltype whichsol)

Task.writedata
¶ void writedata (string filename)
Writes problem data associated with the optimization task to a file in one of the supported formats. See Section Supported File Formats for the complete list.
By default the data file format is determined by the file name extension. This behaviour can be overridden by setting the
iparam.write_data_format
parameter. To write in compressed format append the extension.gz
. E.g to write a gzip compressed MPS file use the extensionmps.gz
.Please note that MPS, LP and OPF files require all variables to have unique names. If a task contains no names, it is possible to write the file with automatically generated anonymous names by setting the
iparam.write_generic_names
parameter toonoffkey.on
.Data is written to the file
filename
if it is a nonempty string. Otherwise data is written to the file specified bysparam.data_file_name
.Please note that if a general nonlinear function appears in the problem then such function cannot be written to file and MOSEK will issue a warning.
