Hello to all.

I’ve just started working with CVX, and try to deal with a SOCP formulation involving a complex design vector. Although I’ve noticed that cvx supports complex data types by defining accordingly the variables, i wonder how this is handled internally. In other words does cvx extends the original complex design vector (let’s say of dimension n) to a new vector with dimension 2n, stacking the real and imaginary parts of the variables x(n) as [Re{x(1}…Re{x(n)}Im{x(1)}…Im{x(n)}] and then solves a real-valued problem? So, if this is the case, could one apply this transformation by him/herself and get the same results?

Thank you very much for your help!
