M. S. Gowda(gowdaumbc.edu) Abstract: In the setting of a Euclidean Jordan algebra V with symmetric cone V_+, corresponding to a linear transformation M, a `weight vector' w in V_+, and a q in V, we consider the weighted linear complementarity problem wLCP(M,w,q) and (when w is in the interior of V_+) the interior point system IPS(M,w,q). When M is copositive and q satisfies an interiority condition, we show that both the problems have solutions. A simple consequence, stated in the setting of R^n is that when M is a copositive plus matrix and q is strictly feasible for the linear complementarity problem LCP(M,q), the corresponding interior point system has a solution. This is analogous to a wellknown result of Kojima et al. on P_*matrices and may lead to interior point methods for solving copositive LCPs.
