GSoC'20 - Differentiating conic programs

Hi all! This blog is one of a series marking my progress in Differentiable Optimization Problems.
You may enjoy reading my first blog. In this post, I will briefly describe how we enabled DiffOpt.jl to differentiate a conic program with an SOCP constraint and improved the interface by adding more tests.

The project - progress

Milestones completed:
1. Testing solver for quadratic programs contquadratic.jl - PR#19
2. Find projections (and derivatives) on dual cones. Differentiate a simple conic program with an SOCP constraint Issue#24 - PR#26
3. Add several MOI tests to improve solver interface - PR#28

What's next?

For the next two weeks, we'll focus on
1. Differentating conic programs with SDP constraints
2. Benchmark differentiation of conic programs with diffcp
