## A primal-dual second order cone approximations algorithm for symmetric cone programming

This paper presents the new concept of second-order cone approximations for convex conic programming. Given any open convex cone $K$, a logarithmically homogeneous self-concordant barrier for $K$ and any positive real number $r \le 1$, we associate, with each direction $x \in K$, a second-order cone $\hat K_r(x)$ containing $K$. We show that $K$ is … Read more
