I want to minimize ||AX-B||_2 enforcing eigenvalues of X <1.

How can I do this with CVX?

`lambda_max(X) <= 1`

If you really need < 1, then use <=1 with s number a little smaller than 1, such as 1-1e-6.

Thank you for your help,

Is there a solution to a “out of memory” problem with cvx?

(CVX :SDPT3, version:4.0)

Get more memory.

One other possibility is to use a first order solver, which may require less memory, but may be slower than 2nd order methods. Specifically, SCS https://github.com/cvxgrp/scs under CVX 3.0beta.

Is there an other solution without using lambda_max(X) <= 1?

Can I for example add constraint to each column of X ?

You can do the equivalent to lambda_max using semidefinite, or norm(X), but I don’t think that makes any difference.

My best suggestion for saving memory while using CVX is what I stated above, to use SCS under CVX 3.0beta.
