*MVE*: Test Set 3

##### (Number of access to this page is

The Maximum Volume Ellipsoid Problem is to find the largest ellipsoid
inscribing a given polytope. This page contains a set of test polytopes,
each represented by an inequality system `Ax <= b`, where the matrix
`A` is `m` by `n` and `b` is a positive
`m`-vector. For these polytopes, the origin is always a strictly
interior point. For each problem, we give `A` and `b`.

This set consists of 10 randomly generated test problems. The files
*p1.mat* through *p10.mat* are Matlab data files each containing
`A` and `b` where `A` is a sparse matrix. The files
*p1.dat* through *p10.dat* are ASCII files, each containing
`3+nnz+m` numbers, where `nnz` represents the number of
nonzeros in `A`, in the following order:

`
m, n, nnz,`

......

i, j, A(i,j)

......

b(1), ..., b(m)
where only nonzero coefficients of `A` are listed.
