       SDPA - High-performance software package for SemiDefinite Programs

       sdpa - "SDPA (SemiDefinite Programming Algorithm)" is one of the most efficient and stable
       software packages for solving SDPs based on the primal-dual interior-point method.

       SDP  (SemiDefinite  Program)  is used for financial engineering, machine learning, control
       theory, sensor network problem,  quantum  chemistry,  quantum  information,  combinatorial
       optimizaiton, polynomial optimization, and so on.

       Further information on SDP and SDPA can be found at

              is decided by the following priority
                 1: The file assigned by '-p' option of 'option type 2'.
                     For 'option type1', this is skipped.
