Messaoud Bounkhel
Regularity concepts of perturbed distance functions at points outside of the set in Banach spaces

Coauthor: Chong Li


In this talk I will present some new results on the
(Fr├ęchet, proximal, Clarke, Mordukhovich)
subdifferential of the perturbed distance function
dSJ(·) determined by a closed subset S and a
Lipschitz function J(·). Using these results, I will estabilsh some important relationships between the regularity of the set and the perturbed distance function
at points outside of S in arbitrary Banach space.

A geometric mean of parameterized arithmetic and harmonic means of convex functions


Recently Bauschke et al. (2008) introduced a new notion of proximal average, and studied this subject systemically from various viewpoints. The proximal average can be an attractive and powerful alternative to the classical arithmetic and
epigraphical averages in the context of convex analysis and optimization problems. The present work aims at providing a further development of the proximal average. For that purpose, exploiting the geometric mean of convex functions by Atteia and Rassouli (2001), we develop a new algorithmic self-dual operator for convex functions termed "the geometric mean of parameterized arithmetic and harmonic means of convex functions'', and investigate its essential properties.

Nguyen Dong Yen
Coderivatives of a Karush-Kuhn-Tucker point set map and applications

Coauthor: Gue Myung Lee


The trust-region subproblem corresponding to the triple
{A,b,α}, where A ∈ Rn× n is a symmetric
matrix, b ∈ Rn a given vector, and α>0 a real number,
is the optimization problem
min\Big{f(x):=1⁄2xTAx+bTx, :,
||x||2 ≤ α2\Big}.\eqno{(P)}
\end{equation*} One often encounters with (P) in
the development of trust-region methods for nonlinear programs.
Since the feasible region of (P) is a convex compact set with an
infinite number of extreme points, the structure of its solution set
(resp. of its Karush-Kuhn-Tucker point set) is quite different from
that of quadratic programs with linear constraints. By using some
tools from Variational Analysis, this paper investigates the
stability of (P) with respect to the perturbations of all the
three components of its data set {A,b,α}.
