# polyhedronFromHData -- Constructing a polyhedron from its H-representation, i.e. inequalities and equations

## Synopsis

• Usage:
P = polyhedronFromHData(I, v)
P = polyhedronFromHData(I, v, E, w)
• Inputs:
• I, , The inequalities
• v, , The right hand side of the inequalities
• E, , The equations
• w, , The right hand side of the equations
• Outputs:

## Description

Constructs a polyhedron from inequalities and equations. Uses the negative halfspace defined by the equations, the normal vectors of every inequality point outside the polyhedron.

The polyhedron is defined by $\{x\in\mathbb{R}\ |\ I * x\le v,\ E * x=w\}$.

Please see V- and H-representation on the conventions we use for cones and polyhedra.
