We point out that Chubanov’s oracle-based algorithm for linear programming  can be applied almost as it is to linear semi-infinite programming (LSIP). In this note, we describe the details and prove the polynomial complexity of the algorithm based on the real computation model proposed by Blum, Shub and Smale (the BSS model) which is more suitable for floating point computation in modern computers. The adoption of the BBS model makes our description and analysis much simpler than the original one by Chubanov . Then we reformulate semidefinite programming (SDP) and second-order cone programming (SOCP) into LSIP, and apply our algorithm to obtain new complexity results for computing interior feasible solutions of homogeneous SDP and SOCP.
