Tight bounds on Lyapunov rank

The Lyapunov rank of a cone is the number of independent equations obtainable from an analogue of the complementary slackness condition in cone programming problems, and more equations are generally thought to be better. Bounding the Lyapunov rank of a proper cone in R^n from above is an open problem. Gowda and Tao gave an … Read more

Lyapunov rank of polyhedral positive operators

If K is a closed convex cone and if L is a linear operator having L(K) a subset of K, then L is a positive operator on K and L preserves inequality with respect to K. The set of all positive operators on K is denoted by pi(K). If J is the dual of K, … Read more

On the bilinearity rank of a proper cone and Lyapunov-like transformations

A real square matrix Q is a bilinear complementarity relation on a proper cone K in R^n if x in K, s in K^* with x perpendicular to s implies x^{T}Qs=0, where K^* is the dual of K. The bilinearity rank of K is the dimension of the space of all bilinear complementarity relations on … Read more
