Consider the half space defined by H = {x ∈ IRn | aT x +alpha ≥ 0} where a ∈ IRn

and alpha ∈ IR are given. Formulate and solve the optimization problem for finding the point

x in H that has the smallest Euclidean norm.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I need help in this problem. I think the problem can be written as

min ||x|| sunbjected to a(transpose) x + a >= 0

am I right
