After the initialization routine
e04raf has been called,
e04ref may be used to define the objective function of the problem as a linear function
${c}^{\mathrm{T}}x$ using a dense vector
$c$ unless the objective function has already been defined by another routine in the suite. This will typically be used for linear semidefinite programming problems (SDP)
or SDP with bilinear matrix inequalities (BMI-SDP) where the objective function has only linear terms. It is recommended to use
e04rff if the vector
$c$ is sparse. See
e04raf for more details.
None.
If on entry
${\mathbf{ifail}}=0$ or
$-1$, explanatory error messages are output on the current error message unit (as defined by
x04aaf).
Not applicable.
None.
See
Section 10 in
e04raf for links to all the examples in the suite.
