On the Aubin property of solution maps to parameterized variational systems with implicit constraints

- Gfrerer, Helmut, Outrata, Jiri

**Authors:**Gfrerer, Helmut , Outrata, Jiri**Date:**2020**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Optimization Vol. 69, no. 7-8 (2020), p. 1681-1701**Relation:**http://purl.org/au-research/grants/arc/DP160100854**Full Text:****Reviewed:****Description:**In the paper, a new sufficient condition for the Aubin property to a class of parameterized variational systems is derived. In these systems, the constraints depend both on the parameter as well as on the decision variable itself and they include, e.g. parameter-dependent quasi-variational inequalities and implicit complementarity problems. The result is based on a general condition ensuring the Aubin property of implicitly defined multifunctions which employs the recently introduced notion of the directional limiting coderivative. Our final condition can be verified, however, without an explicit computation of these coderivatives. The procedure is illustrated by an example. © 2019, © 2019 The Author(s).

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.

On the Aubin property of a class of parameterized variational systems

**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.

This calculus encompasses the whole range of the standard generalized differential calculus for (non-directional) limiting notions and relies on very weak (non-restrictive) qualification conditions having also a directional character. The derived rules facilitate the application of tools exploiting the directional limiting notions to difficult problems of variational analysis including, for instance, various stability and sensitivity issues. This is illustrated by some selected applications in the last part of the paper.

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

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.

Throughout the paper, tools from the directional limiting generalized differential calculus are employed enabling us to impose only rather weak (non- restrictive) qualification conditions.

The radius of metric subregularity

In variational analysis, well-posedness is often understood as a regularity property, which is usually employed to measure the effect of perturbations and approximations of a problem on its solutions. In this paper we focus on evaluating the radius of the property of metric subregularity which, in contrast to its siblings, metric regularity, strong regularity and strong subregularity, exhibits a more complicated behavior under various perturbations. We consider three kinds of perturbations: by Lipschitz continuous functions, by semismooth functions, and by smooth functions, obtaining different expressions/bounds for the radius of subregularity, which involve generalized derivatives of set-valued mappings. We also obtain different expressions when using either Frobenius or Euclidean norm to measure the radius. As an application, we evaluate the radius of subregularity of a general constraint system. Examples illustrate the theoretical findings. © 2019, Springer Nature B.V.**Description:**Funding details: Austrian Science Fund, FWF, P26132-N25, P26640-N25, P29190-N32 Funding details: National Science Foundation, NSF Funding details: Australian Research Council, ARC Funding details: Australian Research Council, ARC, DP160100854 Funding details: Austrian Science Fund, FWF Funding details: Universiteit Stellenbosch, US, P26640-N25 P26132-N25, BodyRef/PDF/11228_2019_Article_523.pdf Funding details: Grantová Agentura

On (local) analysis of multifunctions via subspaces contained in graphs of generalized derivatives

This class of mappings includes the graphically Lipschitzian mappings and thus a number of multifunctions, frequently arising in optimization and equilibrium problems. The developed theory makes use of new generalized derivatives, provides us with some calculus rules and reveals a number of interesting connections.
