On the Aubin property of a class of parameterized variational systems

- Gfrerer, Helmut, Outrata, Jiri

**Authors:**Gfrerer, Helmut , Outrata, Jiri**Date:**2017**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Mathematical Methods of Operations Research Vol. 86, no. 3 (2017), p. 443-467**Relation:**http://purl.org/au-research/grants/arc/DP160100854**Full Text:****Reviewed:****Description:**The paper deals with a new sharp condition ensuring the Aubin property of solution maps to a class of parameterized variational systems. This class encompasses various types of parameterized variational inequalities/generalized equations with fairly general constraint sets. The new condition requires computation of directional limiting coderivatives of the normal-cone mapping for the so-called critical directions. The respective formulas have the form of a second-order chain rule and extend the available calculus of directional limiting objects. The suggested procedure is illustrated by means of examples. © 2017, Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany.

On computation of generalized derivatives of the normal-cone mapping and their applications

**Authors:**Gfrerer, Helmut , Outrata, Jiri**Date:**2016**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Mathematics of Operations Research Vol. 41, no. 4 (2016), p. 1535-1556**Full Text:**false**Reviewed:****Description:**The paper concerns the computation of the graphical derivative and the regular (Fréchet) coderivative of the normal-cone mapping related to C2 inequality constraints under very weak qualification conditions. This enables us to provide the graphical derivative and the regular coderivative of the solution map to a class of parameterized generalized equations with the constraint set of the investigated type. On the basis of these results, we finally obtain a characterization of the isolated calmness property of the mentioned solution map and derive strong stationarity conditions for an MPEC with control constraints. © 2016 INFORMS.

On lipschitzian properties of implicit multifunctions

**Authors:**Gfrerer, Helmut , Outrata, Jiri**Date:**2016**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**SIAM Journal on Optimization Vol. 26, no. 4 (2016), p. 2160-2189**Relation:**http://purl.org/au-research/grants/arc/DP160100854**Full Text:****Reviewed:****Description:**This paper is devoted to the development of new sufficient conditions for the calmness and the Aubin property of implicit multifunctions. As the basic tool we employ the directional limiting coderivative which, together with the graphical derivative, enables a fine analysis of the local behavior of the investigated multifunction along relevant directions. For verification of the calmness property, in addition, a new condition has been discovered which parallels the missing implicit function paradigm and permits us to replace the original multifunction by a substantially simpler one. Moreover, as an auxiliary tool, a handy formula for the computation of the directional limiting coderivative of the normal-cone map with a polyhedral set has been derived which perfectly matches the framework of [A. L. Dontchev and R. T. Rockafellar, SIAM J. Optim., 6 (1996), pp. 1087{1105]. All important statements are illustrated by examples. © 2016 Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.

In this framework we develop a second-order generalized differential approach of variational analysis to calculate appropriate derivatives and coderivatives of the corresponding solution maps. These developments allow us to resolve some important issues related to conic programming. They include verifiable conditions for isolated calmness of the considered solution maps, sharp necessary optimality conditions for a class of mathematical programs with equilibrium constraints, and characterizations of tilt-stable local minimizers for cone-constrained problems. The main results obtained in the general conic programming setting are specified for and illustrated by the second-order cone programming. © 2015 Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.

These characterizations are obtained via appropriate versions of the quadratic growth and strong second-order sufficient conditions under the corresponding constraint qualifications. We also establish close relationships between full stability of local minimizers for SOCPs and strong regularity of the associated generalized equations at nondegenerate points. Our approach is mainly based on advanced tools of second-order variational analysis and generalized differentiation.

On optimal control of a sweeping process coupled with an ordinary differential equation

**Authors:**Adam, Lukas , Outrata, Jiri**Date:**2014**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems - Series B Vol. 19, no. 9 (November 2014 2014), p. 2709-2738**Full Text:**false**Reviewed:****Description:**We study a special case of an optimal control problem governed by a differential equation and a differential rate{independent variational inequality, both with given initial conditions. Under certain conditions, the variational inequality can be reformulated as a differential inclusion with discontinuous right-hand side. This inclusion is known as sweeping process. We perform a discretization scheme and prove the convergence of optimal solutions of the discretized problems to the optimal solution of the original problem. For the discretized problems we study the properties of the solution map and compute its coderivative. Employing an appropriate chain rule, this enables us to compute the subdifferential of the objective function and to apply a suitable optimization technique to solve the discretized problems. The investigated problem is used to model a situation arising in the area of queuing theory.

In particular, we establish the equivalence of one of these constraint qualifications with the recently suggested by Andreani et al. Constant rank of the subspace component constraint qualification. As an application, we make use of this new constraint qualification in the local analysis of the solution map to a parameterized equilibrium problem, modeled by a generalized equation.

Discretization of the continuous state problem leads to a system of finite-dimensional implicit variational inequalities, parametrized by the so-called design variable, that determines the shape of the underlying domain. It is shown that if the coefficient of friction is Lipschitz and sufficiently small in the C0,1 -norm, then the discrete state problems are uniquely solvable for all admissible values of the design variable (the admissible set is assumed to be compact), and the state variables are Lipschitzian functions of the design variable. This facilitates the numerical solution of the discretized shape optimization problem by the so-called implicit programming approach. Our main results concern sensitivity analysis, which is based on the well-developed generalized differential calculus of B. Mordukhovich and generalizes some of the results obtained in this context so far. The derived subgradient information is then combined with the bundle trust method to compute several model examples, demonstrating the applicability and efficiency of the presented approach. © 2014 Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics

On regular coderivatives in parametric equilibria with non-unique multipliers

**Authors:**Henrion, René , Outrata, Jiri , Surowiec, Thomas**Date:**2012**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Mathematical Programming Vol. 136, no. 1 (December 2012), p. 111-131**Full Text:**false**Reviewed:****Description:**This paper deals with the computation of regular coderivatives of solution maps associated with a frequently arising class of generalized equations (GEs). The constraint sets are given by (not necessarily convex) inequalities, and we do not assume linear independence of gradients to active constraints. The achieved results enable us to state several versions of sharp necessary optimality conditions in optimization problems with equilibria governed by such GEs. The advantages are illustrated by means of examples.**Description:**C1

Some remarks on stability of generalized equations

Instead of the linear independence qualification condition, standardly used in this context, one assumes a combination of the Mangasarian-Fromovitz and the constant rank qualification conditions.
