## A Semidefinite Programming Approach for the Nearest Correlation Matrix Problem

The nearest \cm\ problem is to find a positive semidefinite matrix with unit diagonal that is nearest in the Frobenius norm to a given symmetric matrix $A$. This problem can be formulated as an optimization problem with a quadratic objective function and semidefinite programming constraints. Using such a formulation, we derive and test a primal-dual … Read more
