For LA to be a valid approximation of DIAG1, it is necessary that either only adjacent λip ’s for a given i are positive or any one λip is positive or taking the value unity. These restrictions are known as special ordered set of type 2 (SOS2) restrictions and they are automatically satisfied in a convex programming problem.
