On complexity constants of linear and quadratic models for derivative-free trust-region algorithms

Complexity analysis has become an important tool in the convergence analysis of optimization algorithms. For derivative-free optimization algorithms, it is not different. Interestingly, several constants that appear when developing complexity results hide the dimensions of the problem. This work organizes several results in literature about bounds that appear in derivative-free trust-region algorithms based on linear … Read more

Convergence analysis under consistent error bounds

We introduce the notion of consistent error bound functions which provides a unifying framework for error bounds for multiple convex sets. This framework goes beyond the classical Lipschitzian and Holderian error bounds and includes logarithmic and entropic error bound found in the exponential cone. It also includes the error bounds obtainable under the theory of … Read more
