% We consider a binary random variable y with prob(y=1) = p and
% prob(y=0) = 1-p. We assume that that y depends on a vector of
% explanatory variables u in R^n. The logistic model has the form
% p = exp(a'*u+b)/(1+exp(a'*u+b)), where a and b are the model parameters.
% We have m data points (u_1,y_1),...,(u_m,y_m).
% We can reorder the data so that for u_1,..,u_q the outcome is y = 1
% and for u_(q+1),...,u_m the outcome is y = 0. Then it can be shown
% that the ML estimate of a and b can be found by solving
%
% minimize sum_{i=1,..,q}(a'*u_i+b) - sum_i(log(1+exp(a'*u_i+b)))
%
% In this case we have m = 100 and the u_i are just scalars.
% The figure shows the data as well as the function
% f(x) = exp(aml*x+bml)/(1+exp(aml*x+bml)) where aml and bml are the
% ML estimates of a and b.

Successive approximation method to be employed.
For improved efficiency, sedumi is solving the dual problem.
sedumi will be called several times to refine the solution.
