# Can min{<a,r> | r in P} be computed?

Let P be a polytope. The paper I'm reading uses the notation

```
<a, P> = min{<a,r> | r in P}
```

Can this value be computed in sage?

`.to_linear_program()`

to make a linear program out of it (you will then have to set an objective corresponding to `r`

).
