SparseCoLO is a Matlab package for implementing the four conversion methods, proposed by Kim, Kojima, Mevissen, and Yamashita, via positive semidefinite matrix completion for an optimization problem with matrix inequalities satisfying a sparse chordal graph structure. It is based on quite a general description of optimization problem including both primal and dual form of linear, semidefinite, second-order cone programs with equality/inequality constraints. Among the four conversion methods, two methods utilize the domain-space sparsity of a semidefinite matrix variable and the other two methods the range-space sparsity of a linear matrix inequality (LMI) constraint of the given problem. SparseCoLO can be used as a preprocessor to reduce the size of the given problem before applying semidefinite programming solvers.
