Rounding on the standard simplex: regular grids for global optimization

Given a point on the standard simplex, we calculate a proximal point on the regular grid which is closest with respect to any norm in a large class, including all $\ell^p$-norms for $p\ge 1$. We show that the minimal $\ell^p$-distance to the regular grid on the standard simplex can exceed one, even for very fine … Read more
