The maximal angle between 5×5 positive semidefinite and 5×5 nonnegative matrices

Main Article Content

Qinghong Zhang


The paper is devoted to the study of the maximal angle between the $5\times 5$ semidefinite matrix cone and $5\times 5$ nonnegative matrix cone. A signomial geometric programming problem is formulated in the process to find the maximal angle. Instead of using an optimization problem solver to solve the problem numerically, the method of Lagrange Multipliers is used to solve the signomial geometric program, and therefore, to find the maximal angle between these two cones.
