This supplement is for reproducing the computational results in section 5 of the paper "A New Perspective on Low-Rank Optimization" by Dimitris Bertsimas, Ryan Cory-Wright and Jean Pauphilet. Note that a preprint is available here.


The software in this package is designed to provide certifiably near-optimal solutions to low-rank problems using convex relaxations of low-rank constraints. The algorithms implemented here are described in the paper "A New Perspective on Low-Rank Optimization" by Bertsimas, Cory-Wright and Pauphilet. For the user's convenience, we have also included files from the MATLAB package CVXQuad which we used to generate the D-optimal design experimental results.

Setup and Installation

In order to run this software, you must install a recent version of Julia from The most recent version of Julia at the time this code was last tested was Julia 1.5.3; the code should work on any version of Julia beginning in 1.x

You must also have a valid installation of Mosek (>=9.0) for this software to run (academic licenses are freely available at This software was tested on Mosek version 9.1, but should also work on more recent versions of these solvers.

A number of packages must be installed in Julia before the code can be run. They can be added by running:

using Pkg; Pkg.add("JuMP, Mosek, MosekTools, Random, LinearAlgebra, DataFrames, Test, Suppressor, DelimitedFiles, CSV, StatsBase, Compat")

You will also need to ensure that the Julia packages are of the correct version, to guarentee that the code will run (any configuration where the JuMP version is >=0.19 "should" work, but using a different configuration is at your own risk). The versions of the packages which we benchmarked the code on are:

- JuMP  0.21.3
- Gurobi 0.9.3
- MathOptInterface 0.9.19
- Mosek 1.13
- Ipopt 0.6.5
- MosekTools 0.9.4
- StatsBase 0.33.2
- Suppressor 0.2.0

To run the D-optimal design experiments, you will need to install Matlab, CVX and CVXQuad, and run the code in Matlab.
