Specifically, we provide a lower bound on the calmness modulus for semi-infinite programs with unique optimal solution which turns out to be the exact modulus when the problem is finitely constrained. The relationship between the calmness of the argmin mapping and the same property for the (sub)level set mapping (with respect to the objective function), for semi-infinite programs and without requiring the uniqueness of the nominal solution, is explored, too, providing an upper bound on the calmness modulus of the argmin mapping. When confined to finitely constrained problems, we also provide a computable upper bound as it only relies on the nominal data and parameters, not involving elements in a neighborhood. Illustrative examples are provided.

[M.J. Cá novas, M.A. Ló pez, J. Parra, and F.J. Toledo, Distance to ill-posedness and the consistency value of linear semi-infinite inequality systems, Math. Prog. Ser. A 103 (2005), pp. 95-126.] about distance to ill-posedness (feasibility/ infeasibility) in three directions: From individual perturbations of inequalities to perturbations by blocks, from linear to convex inequalities and from finite- to infinite-dimensional (Banach) spaces of variables. The second of the referred directions, developed in the finite-dimensional case, was the original motivation of this article. In fact, after linearizing a convex system via the Fenchel-Legendre conjugate, affine perturbations of convex inequalities translate into block perturbations of the corresponding linearized system. We discuss the key role played by constant perturbations as an extreme case of block perturbations. We emphasize the fact that constant perturbations are enough to compute the distance to ill-posedness in the infinite-dimensional setting, as shown in the last part of this article, where some remarkable differences of infinite- versus finite-dimensional systems are presented. Throughout this article, the set indexing the constraints is arbitrary, with no topological structure. Accordingly, the functional dependence of the system coefficients on the index has no qualification at all.

Quantitative stability of linear infinite inequality systems under block perturbations with applications to convex systems

Parameter perturbations on the right-hand side of the inequalities are required to be merely bounded, and thus the natural parameter space is l∞(J). Our basic strategy consists of linearizing the parameterized convex system via splitting convex inequalities into linear ones by using the Fenchel-Legendre conjugate. This approach yields that arbitrary bounded right-hand side perturbations of the convex system turn on constant-by-blocks perturbations in the linearized system. Based on advanced variational analysis, we derive a precise formula for computing the exact Lipschitzian bound of the feasible solution map of block-perturbed linear systems, which involves only the system's data, and then show that this exact bound agrees with the coderivative norm of the aforementioned mapping. In this way we extend to the convex setting the results of Cánovas et al. (SIAM J. Optim. 20, 1504-1526, 2009) developed for arbitrary perturbations with no block structure in the linear framework under the boundedness assumption on the system's coefficients. The latter boundedness assumption is removed in this paper when the decision space is reflexive. The last section provides the aimed application to the convex case.

Calmness of partially perturbed linear systems with an application to the central path

The case of totally perturbed linear systems was previously analyzed in [Canovas MJ, Lopez MA, Parra J, et al. Calmness of the feasible set mapping for linear inequality systems. Set-Valued Var Anal. 2014;22:375-389, Section 5]. We point out that the presence of such an abstract constraint yields the current paper to appeal to a notable different methodology with respect to previous works on the calmness modulus in linear programming. The interest of this model comes from the fact that partially perturbed systems naturally appear in many applications. As an illustration, the paper includes an example related to the classical central path construction. In this example we consider a certain feasible set mapping whose calmness modulus provides a measure of the convergence of the central path. Finally, we underline the fact that the expression for the calmness modulus obtained in this paper is (conceptually) implementable as far as it only involves the nominal data.

To start with, we deal with the parameter space of linear (finite/semi-infinite) systems identified with the corresponding sets of coefficient vectors, which are assumed to be closed subsets of Rn+1. In this framework the size of perturbations is measured by means of the (extended) Hausdorff distance. A direct antecedent, extensively studied in the literature, comes from considering the parameter space of all linear systems with a fixed index set, T, where the Chebyshev (extended) distance is used to measure perturbations. In the present work we propose an appropriate indexation strategy which allows us to establish the equality of the Lipschitz moduli of the feasible set mappings in both parametric contexts, as well as to benefit from existing results in the Chebyshev setting for transferring them to the Hausdorff one. In a second stage, the possibility of perturbing directly the set of coefficient vectors of a linear system leads to new contributions on the Lipschitz behavior of convex systems via linearization techniques. © 2020, Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany, part of Springer Nature and Mathematical Optimization Society.
