## Mathematical Programs with Cardinality Constraints: Reformulation by Complementarity-type Constraints and a Regularization Method

Optimization problems with cardinality constraints are very dicult mathematical programs which are typically solved by global techniques from discrete optimization. Here we introduce a mixed-integer formulation whose standard relaxation still has the same solutions (in the sense of global minima) as the underlying cardinality-constrained problem; the relation between the local minima is also discussed in … Read more
