Global Convergence of Algorithms Under Constant Rank Conditions for Nonlinear Second-Order Cone Programming

In [R. Andreani, G. Haeser, L. M. Mito, H. Ramírez C., Weak notions of nondegeneracy in nonlinear semidefinite programming, arXiv:2012.14810, 2020] the classical notion of nondegeneracy (or transversality) and Robinson’s constraint qualification have been revisited in the context of nonlinear semidefinite programming exploiting the structure of the problem, namely, its eigendecomposition. This allows formulating the … Read more

First- and second-order optimality conditions for second-order cone and semidefinite programming under a constant rank condition

The well known constant rank constraint qualification [Math. Program. Study 21:110–126, 1984] introduced by Janin for nonlinear programming has been recently extended to a conic context by exploiting the eigenvector structure of the problem. In this paper we propose a more general and geometric approach for defining a new extension of this condition to the … Read more

Sequential constant rank constraint qualifications for nonlinear semidefinite programming with applications

We present new constraint qualification conditions for nonlinear semidefinite programming that extend some of the constant rank-type conditions from nonlinear programming. As an application of these conditions, we provide a unified global convergence proof of a class of algorithms to stationary points without assuming neither uniqueness of the Lagrange multiplier nor boundedness of the Lagrange … Read more

Weak notions of nondegeneracy in nonlinear semidefinite programming

The constraint nondegeneracy condition is one of the most relevant and useful constraint qualifications in nonlinear semidefinite programming. It can be characterized in terms of any fixed orthonormal basis of the, let us say, $\ell$-dimensional kernel of the constraint matrix, by the linear independence of a set of $\ell(\ell+1)/2$ derivative vectors. We show that this … Read more

Naive constant rank-type constraint qualifications for multifold second-order cone programming and semidefinite programming

The constant rank constraint qualification, introduced by Janin in 1984 for nonlinear programming, has been extensively used for sensitivity analysis, global convergence of first- and second-order algorithms, and for computing the derivative of the value function. In this paper we discuss naive extensions of constant rank-type constraint qualifications to second-order cone programming and semidefinite programming, … Read more

Second-Order Variational Analysis in Conic Programming with Applications to Optimality and Stability

This paper is devoted to the study of a broad class of problems in conic programming modeled via parameter-dependent generalized equations. In this framework we develop a second-order generalized di erential approach of variational analysis to calculate appropriate derivatives and coderivatives of the corresponding solution maps. These developments allow us to resolve some important issues related … Read more

Existence and stability results based on asymptotic analysis for semidefinite linear complementarity problems

This work is devoted to the study of existence and stability results of semidefinite linear complementarity problems (SDLCP). Our approach consists of approximating the variational inequality formulation of the SDLCP by a sequence of suitable chosen variational inequalities. This provides particular estimates for the asymptotic cone of the solution set of the SDLCP. We thus … Read more

Linear complementarity problems over symmetric cones: Characterization of Qb-transformations and existence results

This paper is devoted to the study of the {symmetric cone linear complementarity problem} (SCLCP). In this context, our aim is to characterize the class Q_b in terms of larger classes, such as Q and R_0. For this, we introduce the class F and García’s transformations. We studied them for concrete particular instances (such as … Read more

On the Central Paths and Cauchy Trajectories in Semidefinite Programming

In this work, we study the properties of central paths, defined with respect to a large class of penalty and barrier functions, for convex semidefinite programs. The type of programs studied here is characterized by the minimization of a smooth and convex objective function subject to a linear matrix inequality constraint. So, it is a … Read more
