### Dual cone of 'positive' Bochner integrable functions

If we consider the space of integrable functions $L^1([0,1];\mathbb{R})$, it can be ordered by the convex cone of positive integrable functions $L^1([0,1];\mathbb{R}_+)$. It is known that the ...

### A version of isotone projection cones

We write $a \succeq b$, where both $a, b \in \mathbb{R}^n$, as a shorthand for $a_i \ge b_i$ for all $1 \le i \le n$. Let $C$ be a closed convex cone in the first orthant of $\mathbb{R}^n$ and denote ...

### Base of a cone in a vector space: can one always choose a convex base?

Let $C$ be a pointed convex cone in a vector space $V$. This means that $C$ satisfies the three following axioms:
$C + C \subset C$,
$\mathbb{R}_+ \cdot C \subset C$, and
$C \cap (-C) = \{ 0 \}$. ...

### Decomposing polyhedral cones into “direct sums” and a polynomial

This question consists of two parts. I'm not breaking it up into two separate ones because posing the second question would essentially require me two rewrite the first one. Also, to some extent, the ...

### How to (efficiently) find intersection of two polyhedral cones?

I have two polyhedral cones represented by their rays. I am looking to find their intersection, which would also be a polyhedral cone, hopefully efficiently. Does anybody know a way to do that?

### sensitivity analysis in conic optimization

I have a conic optimization of the form:
$\min_x \langle c, x \rangle$, s.t. $Ax = b$, $x \in K$.
Where $x \in \mathbb{R}^{n}$, $A$ is an $m \times n$ matrix, $b \in \mathbb{R}^m$, $K$ is a self ...

### Is dual cone unique? [closed]

Suppose we have the following relationship, note that $A,B,C$ are closed convex matrix cones,
$A^\ast=C,$
$B^\ast=C,$
can we state that $A=B$? Is the dual cone of a cone is unique?
the definition ...

### Suprema and infima in spaces ordered by non-normal cones

Background
We shall call a subset $V_+ \subseteq V$ of a Banach space $V$ a cone if
$V_+$ is closed,
$\alpha V_+ \subseteq V_+$ for all $\alpha \geqslant 0$, and
$V_+ \cap (-V_+) = \{0\}$.
Cones ...

### Linearization of cones

Suppose that $K$ is a closed convex cone in $R^{n}$. Is there a "nice" function $f:R^{n} \rightarrow R^{m}$ so that $f(K)$ is a subspace? What about an approximate subspace?

### When is a matrix similar to a non-negative matrix?

Consider a real square matrix $A$ of size $n\times n$. Under which conditions on $A$ does there exist a row-stochastic matrix $U$ (non-negative, rowsums = 1), such that $A'=U^{-1}AU$ is a non-negative ...

### Which matrix/operator in a cone has the largest negative spectral part?

Background:
Let $\mathcal{K}$ be set (convex cone, if you like) of symmetric matrices of order $n$. Each matrix $A \in \mathcal{K}$ can be decomposed in a unique way as $A=A_{+}-A_{-}$, where ...

### When are cones of matrices “generated” by vectors?

The cone $P_{n}$ of positive semidefinite matrices of order $n$ can be represented in this form: $P_{n}=\{A|\forall x\geq 0: \langle A,xx^{T}>0 \rangle \}$ with $x$ running over ...
