This paper is mainly devoted to the study of the so-called full Lipschitzian stability of local solutions to finite-dimensional parameterized problems of constrained optimization, which has been well recognized as a very important property from both viewpoints of optimization theory and its applications. Based on second- order generalized differential tools of variational analysis, we obtain … Read more

Approximate Maximum Principle for Discrete Approximations of Optimal Control Systems with Nonsmooth Objectives and Endpoint Constraints

The paper studies discrete/finite-difference approximations of optimal control problems governed by continuous-time dynamical systems with endpoint constraints. Finite-difference systems, considered as parametric control problems with the decreasing step of discretization, occupy an intermediate position between continuous-time and discrete-time (with fixed steps) control processes and play a significant role in both qualitative and numerical aspects of … Read more

Nonsmooth cone-constrained optimization with applications to semi-infinite programming

The paper is devoted to the study of general nonsmooth problems of cone-constrained optimization (or conic programming) important for various aspects of optimization theory and applications. Based on advanced constructions and techniques of variational analysis and generalized differentiation, we derive new necessary optimality conditions (in both “exact” and “fuzzy” forms) for nonsmooth conic programs, establish … Read more

Holder Metric Subregularity with Applications to Proximal Point Method

This paper is mainly devoted to the study and applications of H\”older metric subregularity (or metric $q$-subregularity of order $q\in(0,1]$) for general set-valued mappings between infinite-dimensional spaces. Employing advanced techniques of variational analysis and generalized differentiation, we derive neighborhood and pointbased sufficient conditions as well as necessary conditions for $q$-metric subregularity with evaluating the exact … Read more

Necessary optimality conditions in pessimistic bilevel programming

This paper is devoted to the so-called pessimistic version of bilevel programming programs. Minimization problems of this type are challenging to handle partly because the corresponding value functions are often merely upper (while not lower) semicontinuous. Employing advanced tools of variational analysis and generalized differentiation, we provide rather general frameworks ensuring the Lipschitz continuity of … Read more

DC approach to regularity of convex multifunctions with applications to infinite systems

The paper develops a new approach to the study of metric regularity and related well-posedness properties of convex set-valued mappings between general Banach spaces by reducing them to unconstrained minimization problems with objectives given as the difference of convex (DC) functions. In this way we establish new formulas for calculating the exact regularity bound of … Read more

Subdifferentials of nonconvex supremum functions and their applications to semi-infinite and infinite programs with Lipschitzian data

The paper is devoted to the subdifferential study and applications of the supremum of uniformly Lipschitzian functions over arbitrary index sets with no topology. Based on advanced techniques of variational analysis, we evaluate major subdifferentials of the supremum functions in the general framework of Asplund (in particular, reflexive) spaces with no convexity or relaxation assumptions. … Read more

Sensitivity analysis for two-level value functions with applications to bilevel programming

This paper contributes to a deeper understanding of the link between a now conventional framework in hierarchical optimization spread under the name of the optimistic bilevel problem and its initial more dicult formulation that we call here the original optimistic bilevel optimization problem. It follows from this research that, although the process of deriving necessary … Read more
