A nonsmooth Newton-type method for MPCCs

Off Campus Location
We show that the M-stationarity system associated with a mathematical program with complementarity constraints (MPCC) can be equivalently written as a system of discontinuous equations which can be tackled with a nonsmooth Newton-type method based on the idea of using Newton-derivatives instead of the classical notion of semismoothness. Local fast convergence of the method is guaranteed under validity of an MPCC-tailored version of LICQ and a suitable strong second-order condition. In case of linear-quadratic MPCCs, the LICQ-type constraint qualification can be replaced by a weaker condition which depends on the underlying multipliers. We discuss a suitable globalization strategy for our method. Some comments regarding numerical results are presented in order to illustrate these theoretical findings.
