## Abstract

We derive bounds relating the statistical dimension of linear images of convex cones to Renegar's condition number. Using results from conic integral geometry, we show that the bounds can be made to depend only on a random projection to a lower dimensional space, and can still be effective if the linear maps are ill-conditioned. As an application, we get new bounds for the undersampling phase transition of composite convex regularizers. Key tools in the analysis are Slepian's inequality, interpreted as monotonicity property of moment functionals, and the kinematic formula from integral geometry. The main results are derived in the generalized setting of the biconic homogeneous feasibility problem.
