On the variational behaviour of functions with positive steepest descent rate

On the variational behaviour of functions with positive steepest descent rate This paper investigates some aspects of the variational behaviour of nonsmooth functions, with special emphasis on certain stability phenomena. Relationships linking such properties as sharp minimality, superstability, error bound and sufficiency of first-order optimality conditions are discussed. Their study is performed by employing the steepest descent rate, a rather general tool, which is adequate for a metric space analysis. The positivity of the steepest descent rate is then characterized in terms of $$\Phi $$ Φ -subdifferentials. If specialized to a Banach space setting, the resulting characterizations subsume known results on the stability of error bounds. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Positivity Springer Journals
