A new augmented Lagrangian approach to duality and exact penalization
- 127 Downloads
In this paper, we introduce a new notion of augmenting function known as indicator augmenting function to establish a minmax type duality relation, existence of a path of solution converging to optimal value and a zero duality gap relation for a nonconvex primal problem and the corresponding Lagrangian dual problem. We also obtain necessary and sufficient conditions for an exact penalty representation in the framework of indicator augmented Lagrangian.
