## Complexity of Proximal augmented Lagrangian for nonconvex optimization with nonlinear equality constraints

We analyze worst-case complexity of a Proximal augmented Lagrangian (Proximal AL) framework for nonconvex optimization with nonlinear equality constraints. When an approximate first-order (second-order) optimal point is obtained in the subproblem, an $\epsilon$ first-order (second-order) optimal point for the original problem can be guaranteed within $\mathcal{O}(1/ \epsilon^{2 – \eta})$ outer iterations (where $\eta$ is a … Read more
