**Title:**

*A Power Penalty Method for Linear Complementarity Problems over Symmetric Cones*

**Abstract:**

In this talk, we will present a power penalty approach to linear complementarity problems over symmetric cones (SCLCP) based on a nonlinear equation approximation.

Based on a Jordan-algebraic technique, we show that the solution to this equation converges to that of the SCLCP when the penalty parameter tends to infinity under some mild conditions.
