Complementarity Formulations of l0-norm Optimization Problems

In a number of application areas, it is desirable to obtain sparse solutions. Minimizing the number of nonzeroes of the solution (its l0-norm) is a difficult nonconvex optimization problem, and is often approximated by the convex problem of minimizing the l1-norm. In contrast, we consider exact formulations as mathematical programs with complementarity constraints and their … Read more
