Optimality conditions for the nonlinear programming problems on Riemannian manifolds

In recent years, many traditional optimization methods have been successfully generalized to minimize objective functions on manifolds. In this paper, we first extend the general traditional constrained optimization problem to a nonlinear programming problem built upon a general Riemannian manifold $\mathcal{M}$, and discuss the first-order and the second-order optimality conditions. By exploiting the differential geometry … Read more
