The software 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.
