This function returns a `list`

object of control parameters that
are passed down to the `C`

-function `SOCP`

. It's default
values are used in `Socp`

.

```
SocpControl(abs.tol = 1e-18, rel.tol = 1e-16, target = 0,
max.iter = 500, Nu = 10, out.mode = 0, BigM.K = 2,
BigM.iter = 5)
```

abs.tol

Absolute tolerance.

rel.tol

Relative tolerance.

target

Target value < 0, only used if rel.tol < 0.

max.iter

The maximum number of iterations, socp is aborted if more are required for convergence.

Nu

The parameter that controls the rate of convergence, Nu > 1, recommended range 5 to 50.

out.mode

Specifies what should be output: 0 - nothing, 1 - duality gap for initial point and after each iteration, 2 - duality gap and deviation from centrality, for initial point and after each iteration.

BigM.K

Iterataion parameter. The default values is ```
BigM.K
= 2
```

.

BigM.iter

Iterataion parameter. The default values is
`BigM.iter = 5`

.

A `list`

object with the control parameters.
