Hi,
I'm looking for a solver that will help me optimise my objective function.
My objective function is linear and so are most of my constraints (so up till this point I’ve been using Linprog, which has worked well) but now I've expanded my constraints to include a nonlinear constraint. I don’t know if now I should try to use Quadprog? Or fmincon? Any advice would be appreciated.
Thank you!

As of R2020b, Optimization Toolbox now has a dedicated solver for second-order cone programming, which can be used to solve quadratic constrained problems.

coupled with a function to make a second-order cone constraint
