The complementarity problem over a symmetric cone (that we call the Symmetric Cone Complementarity Problem, or the SCCP) has received much attention of researchers in the last decade. Most of studies done on the SCCP can be categorized into the three research themes, interior point methods for the SCCP, merit or smoothing function methods for the SCCP, and various properties of the SCCP. In this paper, we will provide a brief survey on the recent developments on these three themes.
