MSK_DPAR_CHECK_CONVEXITY_REL_TOL

This parameter controls when the full convexity check declares a problem to be non-convex. Increasing this tolerance relaxes the criteria for declaring the problem non-convex.

A problem is declared non-convex if negative (positive) pivot elements are detected in the Cholesky factor of a matrix which is required to be PSD (NSD). This parameter controls how much this non-negativity requirement may be violated.

If \(d_i\) is the pivot element for column \(i\), then the matrix \(Q\) is considered to not be PSD if:

\[d_i \leq - |Q_{ii}| \mathtt{check\_convexity\_rel\_tol}\]
