FW: Announce: semidefinite programming in Octave

Linear matrix inequalities have been a popular topic in control systems 
theory since Boyd et al's book LINEAR MATRIX INEQUALTIES IN SYSTEM AND 
CONTROL THEORY was released.  Boyd and Vandenberghe developed a semidefinite
programming package that is on their Stanford website.  I've ported the 
package to Octave, and it is now available at

There are copyright notices, etc., in the code and supporting documentation
that need to be read; in particular, if you use the package in generating
results for a publication, you should give them credit for their package.

To use the package: 
(1) download the code
(2) gunzip -c semidef-oct.tar.gz | tar -xvf -
(3) cd semidef-oct/SRC
(4) make
    (requires mkoctfile from the Octave distribution)
    creates sp.oct, a dynamically loadable function.  Sorry,
    sp is NOT available as an m-file.
(5) An octave demo program called demosp.m is included in the 
    revised sources; you should probably run this first from
    within octave.

Octave is a numerical programming environment; information is available at
