Thank you for the help but my description was not complet:
The function to minimize is simply f (w) = w' * Sigma * w
with w a vector and Sigma a square matrix
The constraints are :
0 <= w <= 1
sum(w) = 1
R' * w = a constant
and R a vector of the same size as w
Sorry for the missing information.
I think that the Aitchison transformation won't work in this case...
Do you have an idea to solve this system ?
Thanks for your help
