MOSEK version 7.1 BETA available!

We are glad to announce that a beta version of the upcoming release 7.1 of our software is now available for download.

The main improvements and new features are:

* Improved performance of the mixed-integer conic optimizer

* Updated MPS reader with support for the CPLEX specific sections QMATRIX and QCMATRIX.

* The default MPS format has been changed to the free MPS format.

* Experimental support for reading the conic benchmark format. Semidefinite constraints and
variables are not supported yet.

* A new experimental feature for reformulating certain quadratically constrained into a conic

* In Fusion it is now possible to obtain optimizer statistics e.g. mixed integer gap etc.

* Access to some BLAS/LAPACK routines directly from the solver API.

To obtain a copy please visit

and select the relevant platform and operating system you like. We hope to have feed back from you!

Note that the beta version needs a valid license for MOSEK 7, trial and academic license included.

Slides from our workshop on SDP preprocessing.

We would like to thank to our guest for the nice workshop held yesterday here at our site. Etienne, Frank and Joachim have given three nice and interesting talks on cutting edge technique for the preprocessing of semidefinite programs. 

Click on the links below to download the slides:

Title: Exploiting special structure in semidefinite programs
Speaker: Etienne De Klerk, Tilburg University (NL)

Title: Partial facial reduction: simplified, equivalent SDPs via approximations of the PSD cone
Speaker: Frank Permenter, MIT (US)

Speaker: Joachim Dahl, MOSEK ApS (DK)

We hope to see all of you soon, possibly at the INFORMS meeting in November!
