A note on the usage of nondifferentiable exact penalties in some special optimization problems. (English) Zbl 0649.90092

The usage of exact nondifferentiable penalties for the numerical solution of optimization problems with a special constraint structure is recommended. Vectors from generalized gradients of appropriate objectives are computed so that effective nondifferentiable minimization methods can be applied.
