A bundle method for nonsmooth DC programming with application to chance-constrained problems

This work considers nonsmooth and nonconvex optimization problems whose objective and constraint functions are defined by difference-of-convex (DC) functions. We consider an infeasible bundle method based on the so-called improvement functions to compute critical points for problems of this class. Our algorithm neither employs penalization techniques nor solves subproblems with linearized constraints. The approach, which … Read more
