% The goal is to find an ellipsoid that contains all the points
% x_1,...,x_N but none of the points y_1,...,y_M. The equation of the
% ellipsoidal surface is: z'*P*z + q'*z + r =0
% P, q and r can be obtained by solving the SDP feasibility problem:
%           minimize    0
%               s.t.    x_i'*P*x_i + q'*x_i + r >=  1   for i = 1,...,N
%                       y_i'*P*y_i + q'*y_i + r <= -1   for i = 1,...,M
%                       P <= -I
