Bishop-Phelps cones given by an equation in Banach spaces

In this work, we study Bishop-Phelps cones (briefly, BP cones) given by an equation in Banach spaces. Due to the special form, these cones enjoy interesting properties. We show that nontrivial BP cones given by an equation form a “large family” in some sense in any Banach space and they can be used to characterize … Read more

Optimality conditions in discrete-continuous nonlinear optimization

This paper presents necessary and sufficient optimality conditions for discrete-continuous nonlinear optimization problems including mixed-integer nonlinear problems. This theory does not utilize an extension of the Lagrange theory of continuous optimization but it works with certain max functionals for a separation of two sets where one of them is nonconvex. These functionals have the advantage … Read more
