## Constructing self-concordant barriers for convex cones

In this paper we develop a technique for constructing self-concordant barriers for convex cones. We start from a simple proof for a variant of standard result on transformation of a $\nu$-self-concordant barrier for a set into a self-concordant barrier for its conic hull with parameter $(3.08 \sqrt{\nu} + 3.57)^2$. Further, we develop a convenient composition … Read more
