A unifying approach to robust convex infinite optimization duality

To this problem, where the uncertainty only affects the constraints, we associate a robust (pessimistic) counterpart and several dual problems. The paper provides corresponding dual variational principles for the robust counterpart in terms of the closed convexity of different associated cones.

Characterizations of robust and stable duality for linearly perturbed uncertain optimization problems

The interest of our approach is illustrated by some examples, including uncertain conic optimization and infinite optimization via discretization. The main results characterize desirable robust duality relations (as robust zero-duality gap) by formulas involving the epsilon-minima or the epsilon-subdifferentials of the objective function. The two extreme cases, namely, the usual perturbational duality (without uncertainty), and the duality for the supremum of functions (duality parameter vanishing) are analyzed in detail. © Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2020.

More in detail, the paper provides characterizations of stable strong robust duality and stable robust duality under convexity and closedness assumptions. The paper also reviews the classical Fenchel duality of the sum of two functions by considering a suitable family of perturbation functions.

New glimpses on convex infinite optimization duality

- Goberna, Miguel, López, Marco, Volle, Michel

**Authors:**Goberna, Miguel , López, Marco , Volle, Michel**Date:**2015**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Revista de la Real Academia de Ciencias Exactas, Fisicas y Naturales - Serie A: Matematicas Vol. 109, no. 2 (2015), p. 431-450**Full Text:**false**Reviewed:****Description:**Given a convex optimization problem (P) in a locally convex topological vector space X with an arbitrary number of constraints, we consider three possible dual problems of (P), namely, the usual Lagrangian dual (D), the perturbational dual (Q), and the surrogate dual (Î”), the last one recently introduced in a previous paper of the authors (Goberna et al., J Convex Anal 21(4), 2014). As shown by simple examples, these dual problems may be all different. This paper provides conditions ensuring that (P)=max(D), (P)=max(Q), and (P)=max(Î”) (dual equality and existence of dual optimal solutions) in terms of the so-called closedness regarding to a set. Sufficient conditions guaranteeing (P)=sup(Q) (dual equality and existence of primal optimal solutions) are also provided, for the nominal problems and also for their perturbational relatives. The particular cases of convex semi-infinite optimization problems (in which either the number of constraints or the dimension of X, but not both, is finite) and linear infinite optimization problems are analyzed. Finally, some applications to the feasibility of convex inequality systems are described. © 2014, Springer-Verlag Italia.

The key tool is, as in Hiriart-Urruty et al. (2011) [7], the concept of ε-subdifferential. Some other assumptions which are standard in the literature are also removed.
