Second-order analysis of the Moreau-Yosida and the Lasry-Lions regularizations


In this work we dropp the condition of convexity and consider both Moreau-Yosida and Lasry-Lions regularizations of locally Lipschitz quadratically minorized functions. Our aim is to investigate the second-order properties of both these regularizations and to relate them to the approximated function itself. For this purpose we consider functions that admit a second-order expanion (e.g., prox-regular functions).
These function possess a generalized Hessian, but note that this
property is weaker than the existence of a classical Hessian, since we
suppose only the existence of the first partial derivatives. We give sufficient conditions for the
regularizations to have a generalized Hessian as well. Emphasize that these results are useful for the convergence analysis of approximate numerical methods for solving nonsmooth optimization problems.
