This paper studies high-order evaluation complexity for partially separable convexly-constrained optimization involving non-Lipschitzian group sparsity terms in a nonconvex objective function. We propose a partially separable adaptive regularization algorithm using a $p$-th order Taylor model and show that the algorithm can produce an (epsilon,delta)-approximate q-th-order stationary point in at most O(epsilon^{-(p+1)/(p-q+1)}) evaluations of the objective function and its first p derivatives (whenever they exist) Our model uses the underlying rotational symmetry of the Euclidean norm function to build a Lipschitzian approximation for the non-Lipschitzian group sparsity terms, which are defined by the group \ell_2-\ell_a norm with a in (0,1). The new result shows that the partially-separable structure and non-Lipschitzian group sparsity terms in the objective function may not affect the worst-case evaluation complexity order.
