Implementation of a continuation method for normal maps. (English) Zbl 0873.90093
Summary: This paper presents an implementation of a nonsmooth continuation method of which the idea was originally put forward by J. C. Alexander and others. We show how the method can be computationally implemented and present numerical results for variational inequality problems in up to 96 variables.
