Exact Convergence Rates of Alternating Projections for Nontransversal Intersections

We study the exact convergence rate of the alternating projection method for the nontransversal intersection of a semialgebraic set and a linear subspace. If the linear subspace is a line, the exact rates are expressed by multiplicities of the defining polynomials of the semialgebraic set, or related power series. Our methods are also applied to … Read more

Perturbation Analysis of Singular Semidefinite Program and Its Application to a Control Problem

We consider the sensitivity of semidefinite programs (SDPs) under perturbations. It is well known that the optimal value changes continuously under perturbations on the right hand side in the case where the Slater condition holds in the primal problems. In this manuscript, we observe by investigating a concrete SDP that the optimal value can be … Read more
