Numerical Analysis
Round-off estimates for second-order conic feasibility problems
Comptes Rendus. Mathématique, Volume 350 (2012) no. 11-12, pp. 639-641.

We present the analysis of an interior-point method to decide feasibility problems of second-order conic systems. A main feature of this algorithm is that arithmetic operations are performed with finite precision. Bounds for both the number of arithmetic operations and the finest precision required are exhibited.

Nous présentons une analyse de la méthode des points intérieurs pour résoudre les problèmes de faisabilité des systèmes coniques du second ordre. Une caractéristique principale de cet algorithme est que les opérations arithmétiques sont effectuées en précision finie. Des estimations du nombre des opérations arithmétiques et de la précision requise sont obtenues.
