**Abstract**

An infeasible interior-point algorithm for mixed symmetric cone linear complementarity problems is proposed. Using the machinery of Euclidean Jordan algebras and Nesterov-Todd search direction, the convergence analysis of the algorithm is shown and proved. Moreover, we obtain a polynomial time complexity bound which matches the currently best known iteration bound for infeasible interior-point methods.
