Ferris, Michael C. (ed.) et al., Complementarity and variational problems. State of the art. Proceedings of the international conference, Baltimore, MD, USA, November 1–4, 1995. Philadelphia, PA: SIAM, Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. 148-164 (1997).
The authors consider a class of optimization problems in which either nonlinear complementarity or implicit complementarity problems arise as side constraints. Under the assumption of strong regularity of Robinson at a local minimum, the authors derive necessary optimality conditions and propose a numerical approach to the solution of these problems. This approach is applied to a design problem from continuum mechanics.
