  • About Error Bounds in Metrizable Topological Vector Spaces

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper aims to present some sufficient criteria under which a given function between two spaces that are either topological vector spaces whose topologies are generated by metrics or metrizable subsets of some topological vector spaces, satisfies the error bound property. Then, we discuss the Hoffman estimation and obtain some results for the estimate of the distance to the set of solutions to a system of linear equalities. The advantage of our estimate is that it allows to calculate the coefficient of the error bound. The applications of this presentation are illustrated by some examples.

      Abstract: Abstract We propose a definition of Lipschizian manifold that is more precise than the notion of Lipschitzian parameterization. It is modelled on the notion of differentiable manifold. We also give a notion of Lipschitzian submanifold and compare it with a notion devised by R.T. Rockafellar (Ann. I.H.P. Sect. C 2(3), 167–184, 1985). Among the examples we mention, the case of the graph of a maximally monotone operator and of the subjet of a convex function are the most notable.

      Abstract: Abstract In this work we completely describe the superdifferential of the Takagi-Van der Waerden functions and, as a consequence, the local maxima of these functions are characterized. Regarding the set of points where the superdifferential is not empty, we calculate its Hausdorff dimension as well as its corresponding Hausdorff measure. To do so, for any even integer greater than or equal to two we determine the 1/2-dimensional Hausdorff measure of the set of points where Takagi-Van der Waerden functions attain their global maximum.

  • Limits of Eventual Families of Sets with Application to Algorithms for the
           Common Fixed Point Problem

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: We present an abstract framework for asymptotic analysis of convergence based on the notions of eventual families of sets that we define. A family of subsets of a given set is called here an “eventual family” if it is upper hereditary with respect to inclusion. We define accumulation points of eventual families in a Hausdorff topological space and define the “image family” of an eventual family. Focusing on eventual families in the set of the integers enables us to talk about sequences of points. We expand our work to the notion of a “multiset” which is a modification of the concept of a set that allows for multiple instances of its elements and enable the development of “multifamilies” which are either “increasing” or “decreasing”. The abstract structure created here is motivated by, and feeds back to, our look at the convergence analysis of an iterative process for asymptotically finding a common fixed point of a family of operators.

  • An Algorithm for Best Generalised Rational Approximation of Continuous
           Functions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In this paper we introduce an algorithm for solving variational inequality problems when the operator is pseudomonotone and point-to-set (therefore not relying on continuity assumptions). Our motivation is the development of a method for solving optimisation problems appearing in Chebyshev rational and generalised rational approximation problems, where the approximations are constructed as ratios of linear forms (linear combinations of basis functions). The coefficients of the linear forms are subject to optimisation and the basis functions are continuous functions. It is known that the objective functions in generalised rational approximation problems are quasiconvex. In this paper we prove a stronger result, the objective functions are pseudoconvex in the sense of Penot and Quang. Then we develop numerical methods, that are efficient for a wide range of pseudoconvex functions and test them on generalised rational approximation problems.

  • Suns, Moons, and $$\mathring{B}$$ B ˚ -complete Sets in Asymmetric
           Spaces

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Classical concepts and problems of geometric approximation theory are considered in normed and asymmetric spaces. Relations between strict suns, sets with outer radially continuous (ORL continuous) metric projection, unimodal sets, \(\mathring{B}\) -complete sets, and moons are studied. The concepts of a B-sun and a local B-sun in an asymmetric space are introduced (a set is called a B-sun if its intersection with any closed ball is either a sun or empty). We show that a unimodal local B-sun is a strict sun, construct an example of a Chebyshev set which is not a local B-sun, and prove that, for a local B-sun in an asymmetric space, the condition of ORL-continuity of the metric projection is equivalent to its strict solarity. Moreover, it is shown that in an asymmetric space a B-sun with sequentially compact set of nearest points is a sun.

  • The Projection onto the Cross

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We consider the set of pairs of orthogonal vectors in Hilbert space, which is also called the cross because it is the union of the horizontal and vertical axes in the Euclidean plane when the underlying space is the real line. Crosses, which are nonconvex sets, play a significant role in various branches of nonsmooth analysis such as feasibility problems and optimization problems. In this work, we study crosses and show that in infinite-dimensional settings, they are never weakly (sequentially) closed. Nonetheless, crosses do turn out to be proximinal (i.e., they always admit projections) and we provide explicit formulas for the projection onto the cross in all cases.

      Abstract: Abstract Primal characterizations (necessary and sufficient conditions) and slope characterizations of subtransversality, intrinsic transversality and transversality are obtained. The metric nature of intrinsic transversality is established. The relation of intrinsic transversality and tangential transversality is clarified. The equivalence of our characterization of intrinsic transversality and the primal characterization of intrinsic transversality of Thao et al. in the setting of Hilbert spaces is proved, while in general Banach spaces our characterization is less restrictive.

  • Estimates of Generalized Hessians for Optimal Value Functions in
           Mathematical Programming

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We consider the optimal value function of a parametric optimization problem. A large number of publications have been dedicated to the study of continuity and differentiability properties of the function. However, the differentiability aspect of works in the current literature has mostly been limited to first order analysis, with focus on estimates of its directional derivatives and subdifferentials, given that the function is typically nonsmooth. With the progress made in the last two to three decades in major subfields of optimization such as robust, minmax, semi-infinite and bilevel optimization, and their connection to the optimal value function, there is a need for a second order analysis of the generalized differentiability properties of this function. This could enable the development of robust solution algorithms, such as the Newton method. The main goal of this paper is to provide estimates of the generalized Hessian for the optimal value function. Our results are based on two handy tools from parametric optimization, namely the optimal solution and Lagrange multiplier mappings, for which completely detailed estimates of their generalized derivatives are either well-known or can easily be obtained.

  • Convergence of Constant Step Stochastic Gradient Descent for Non-Smooth
           Non-Convex Functions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper studies the asymptotic behavior of the constant step Stochastic Gradient Descent for the minimization of an unknown function, defined as the expectation of a non convex, non smooth, locally Lipschitz random function. As the gradient may not exist, it is replaced by a certain operator: a reasonable choice is to use an element of the Clarke subdifferential of the random function; another choice is the output of the celebrated backpropagation algorithm, which is popular amongst practioners, and whose properties have recently been studied by Bolte and Pauwels. Since the expectation of the chosen operator is not in general an element of the Clarke subdifferential of the mean function, it has been assumed in the literature that an oracle of the Clarke subdifferential of the mean function is available. As a first result, it is shown in this paper that such an oracle is not needed for almost all initialization points of the algorithm. Next, in the small step size regime, it is shown that the interpolated trajectory of the algorithm converges in probability (in the compact convergence sense) towards the set of solutions of a particular differential inclusion: the subgradient flow. Finally, viewing the iterates as a Markov chain whose transition kernel is indexed by the step size, it is shown that the invariant distribution of the kernel converge weakly to the set of invariant distribution of this differential inclusion as the step size tends to zero. These results show that when the step size is small, with large probability, the iterates eventually lie in a neighborhood of the critical points of the mean function.

  • Set-Valued Evenly Convex Functions: Characterizations and C-Conjugacy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In this work we deal with set-valued functions with values in the power set of a separated locally convex space where a nontrivial pointed convex cone induces a partial order relation. A set-valued function is evenly convex if its epigraph is an evenly convex set, i.e., it is the intersection of an arbitrary family of open half-spaces. In this paper we characterize evenly convex set-valued functions as the pointwise supremum of its set-valued e-affine minorants. Moreover, a suitable conjugation pattern will be developed for these functions, as well as the counterpart of the biconjugation Fenchel-Moreau theorem.

      Abstract: The main purpose of this paper is to find conditions for Hölder calmness of the solution mapping, viewed as a function of the boundary data, of a hemivariational inequality governed by the Navier-Stokes operator. To this end, a more abstract model is studied first: a class of parametric equilibrium problems defined by trifunctions. The presence of trifunctions allows the extension of the monotonicity notions in the theory of equilibrium problems.

  • A Direct Proof of Convergence of Davis–Yin Splitting Algorithm
           Allowing Larger Stepsizes

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This note is devoted to the splitting algorithm proposed by Davis and Yin (Set-valued Var. Anal. 25(4), 829–858, 2017) for computing a zero of the sum of three maximally monotone operators, with one of them being cocoercive. We provide a direct proof that guarantees its convergence when the stepsizes are smaller than four times the cocoercivity constant, thus doubling the size of the interval established by Davis and Yin. As a by-product, the same conclusion applies to the forward-backward splitting algorithm. Further, we use the notion of “strengthening” of a set-valued operator to derive a new splitting algorithm for computing the resolvent of the sum. Last but not least, we provide some numerical experiments illustrating the importance of appropriately choosing the stepsize and relaxation parameters of the algorithms.

      Abstract: Abstract We present higher order necessary conditions for a model of welfare economics, where the preference mapping has a star-shape property. We assume that the preferences can be satiable and can be described by an arbitrary preference set, without the use of utility functions. These conditions are formulated in terms of higher-order directional derivatives of multivalued mappings, and the variable domination structure is not given by cones.

  • Circumcentering Reflection Methods for Nonconvex Feasibility Problems

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Recently, circumcentering reflection method (CRM) has been introduced for solving the feasibility problem of finding a point in the intersection of closed constraint sets. It is closely related with Douglas–Rachford method (DR). We prove local convergence of CRM in the same prototypical settings of most theoretical analysis of regular nonconvex DR, whose consideration is made natural by the geometry of the phase retrieval problem. For the purpose, we show that CRM is related to the method of subgradient projections. For many cases when DR is known to converge to a feasible point, we establish that CRM locally provides a better convergence rate. As a root finder, we show that CRM has local convergence whenever Newton–Raphson method does, has quadratic rate whenever Newton–Raphson method does, and exhibits superlinear convergence in many cases when Newton–Raphson method fails to converge at all. We also obtain explicit regions of convergence. As an interesting aside, we demonstrate local convergence of CRM to feasible points in cases when DR converges to fixed points that are not feasible. We demonstrate an extension in higher dimensions, and use it to obtain convergence rate guarantees for sphere and subspace feasibility problems. Armed with these guarantees, we experimentally discover that CRM is highly sensitive to compounding numerical error that may cause it to achieve worse rates than those guaranteed by theory. We then introduce a numerical modification that enables CRM to achieve the theoretically guaranteed rates. Any future works that study CRM for product space formulations of feasibility problems should take note of this sensitivity and account for it in numerical implementations.

  • Stability of Minimization Problems and the Error Bound Condition

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract It is well known that Error Bound conditions provide some (usually linear or sublinear) rate of convergence for gradient descent methods in unconstrained and, in certain cases, in constrained optimization. We prove that the same conditions in constrained optimization guarantee stability of minimization problems: if we slightly change the function and the set then the solution set can not change much. Both the function and the set are not necessarily convex. We obtain an upper bound for the Hausdorff halfdistance between solutions via the function from the Error bound condition. In a real Hilbert space or in \(\mathbb {R}^{n}\) these results generalize known results about stability of convex functionals.

  • Optimal Control and Directional Differentiability for Elliptic
           Quasi-Variational Inequalities

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We focus on elliptic quasi-variational inequalities (QVIs) of obstacle type and prove a number of results on the existence of solutions, directional differentiability and optimal control of such QVIs. We give three existence theorems based on an order approach, an iteration scheme and a sequential regularisation through partial differential equations. We show that the solution map taking the source term into the set of solutions of the QVI is directionally differentiable for general data and locally Hadamard differentiable obstacle mappings, thereby extending in particular the results of our previous work which provided the first differentiability result for QVIs in infinite dimensions. Optimal control problems with QVI constraints are also considered and we derive various forms of stationarity conditions for control problems, thus supplying among the first such results in this area.

  • Nonconvex and Nonsmooth Approaches for Affine Chance-Constrained
           Stochastic Programs

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Chance-constrained programs (CCPs) constitute a difficult class of stochastic programs due to its possible nondifferentiability and nonconvexity even with simple linear random functionals. Existing approaches for solving the CCPs mainly deal with convex random functionals within the probability function. In the present paper, we consider two generalizations of the class of chance constraints commonly studied in the literature; one generalization involves probabilities of disjunctive nonconvex functional events and the other generalization involves mixed-signed affine combinations of the resulting probabilities; together, we coin the term affine chance constraint (ACC) system for these generalized chance constraints. Our proposed treatment of such an ACC system involves the fusion of several individually known ideas: (a) parameterized upper and lower approximations of the indicator function in the expectation formulation of probability; (b) external (i.e., fixed) versus internal (i.e., sequential) sampling-based approximation of the expectation operator; (c) constraint penalization as relaxations of feasibility; and (d) convexification of nonconvexity and nondifferentiability via surrogation. The integration of these techniques for solving the affine chance-constrained stochastic program (ACC-SP) is the main contribution of this paper. Indeed, combined together, these ideas lead to several algorithmic strategies with various degrees of practicality and computational efforts for the nonconvex ACC-SP. In an external sampling scheme, a given sample batch (presumably large) is applied to a penalty formulation of a fixed-accuracy approximation of the chance constraints of the problem via their expectation formulation. This results in a sample average approximation scheme, whose almost-sure convergence under a directional derivative condition to a Clarke stationary solution of the expectation constrained-SP as the sample sizes tend to infinity is established. In contrast, sequential sampling, along with surrogation leads to a sequential convex programming based algorithm whose asymptotic convergence for fixed- and diminishing-accuracy approximations of the indicator function can be established under prescribed increments of the sample sizes.

      Abstract: Abstract In this paper we deal with theorems of the alternative for systems of inequalities. Precisely, we give a formulation that encompasses several known alternative theorems and unifies their treatment under a minimax equality assumption which is fulfilled by a whole panoply of families of functions. We also give extensions of Yuan’s lemma to systems with several general functions provided that they fulfill a certain minimax theorem, and to some particular systems of several quadratic functions.
