# getInequality

Obtain inequality constraint arrays from portfolio object

## Syntax

``````[AInequality,bInequality] = getInequality(obj)``````

## Description

Use the `getInequality` function with a `Portfolio`, `PortfolioCVaR`, or `PortfolioMAD` object to obtain inequality constraint arrays from portfolio objects.

For details on the respective workflows when using these different objects, see Portfolio Object Workflow, PortfolioCVaR Object Workflow, and PortfolioMAD Object Workflow.

example

``````[AInequality,bInequality] = getInequality(obj)``` obtains equality constraint arrays from portfolio objects.```

## Examples

collapse all

Suppose you have a portfolio of five assets and you want to ensure that the first three assets are no more than 50% of your portfolio. Given a Portfolio object `p`, set the linear inequality constraints and then obtain values for `AInequality` and `bInequality`.

```A = [ 1 1 1 0 0 ]; b = 0.5; p = Portfolio; p = setInequality(p, A, b); [AInequality, bInequality] = getInequality(p)```
```AInequality = 1×5 1 1 1 0 0 ```
```bInequality = 0.5000 ```

Suppose you have a portfolio of five assets and you want to ensure that the first three assets constitute at most 50% of your portfolio. Given a PortfolioCVaR object `p`, set the linear inequality constraints and then obtain values for `AInequality` and `bInequality`.

```A = [ 1 1 1 0 0 ]; b = 0.5; p = PortfolioCVaR; p = setInequality(p, A, b); [AInequality, bInequality] = getInequality(p)```
```AInequality = 1×5 1 1 1 0 0 ```
```bInequality = 0.5000 ```

## Input Arguments

collapse all

Object for portfolio, specified using `Portfolio`, `PortfolioCVaR`, or `PortfolioMAD` object. For more information on creating a portfolio object, see

Data Types: `object`

## Output Arguments

collapse all

Matrix to form linear inequality constraints, returned as a matrix for a `Portfolio`, `PortfolioCVaR`, or `PortfolioMAD` input object (`obj`).

Vector to form linear inequality constraints, returned as a vector for a `Portfolio`, `PortfolioCVaR`, or `PortfolioMAD` input object (`obj`).

## Tips

You can also use dot notation to obtain the inequality constraint arrays from portfolio objects.

`[AInequality, bInequality] = obj.getInequality;`
