## MPCC Strategies for Nonsmooth NLPs

This paper develops solution strategies for large-scale nonsmooth optimization problems. We transform nonsmooth programs into equivalent mathematical programs with complementarity constraints (MPCCs), and then employ NLP-based strategies for their so- lution. For this purpose, two NLP formulations based on complementarity relaxations are put forward, one of which applies a parameterized formulation and operates with a … Read more
