I get the following error in a small probability when using rel_entr_quad,
And the corresponding code is as follows
And the expression of Equation_first_1 is
By the way, when I don’t add the eps in the code, this problem happens more frequently. I appreciate any help!
That is happening due to the 2nd argument of
rel_entr_quad, i.e., the argument of
log, being negative, even if just barely so. You need to ensure that argument is nonnegative.
I can’t be more specific because I don’t know which of the things in that argument are CVX variables or expressions, as opposed to input data. If
W_1 is a matrix variable which is constrained to be semidefinite, that argument should in theory be nonnegative. If
W_1 is input data and is semidefinite, that should also be nonnegative. It may be that a simple fix to either of those situations is to use a larger number instead of
eps, for instance,
W_1 is not semidefinite, there is no reason that argument would have to be nonnegative.
BTW, if you have access to Mosek, it is better to Mosek as solver, combined with use of
log(argument), rather than using
