Convergence Conditions for Newton-type Methods Applied to Complementarity Systems with Nonisolated Solutions

We consider a class of Newton-type methods for constrained systems of equations that involve complementarity conditions. In particular, at issue are the constrained Levenberg–Marquardt method and the recently introduced Linear Programming-Newton method, designed for the difficult case when solutions need not be isolated, and the equation mapping need not be differentiable at the solutions. We … Read more
