Title: Smoothing techniques in nonsmooth optimisation and applications
Abstract: In this talk, we consider an application of smoothing techniques to a broad class of nonsmooth optimisation problems. This class includes functions represented as a difference of two, in general nonsmooth, convex functions and also functions represented as a difference of two Clarke regular functions. However, we assume that component functions in these representations are either maximum functions or smooth composition of discrete maximum functions. Numerical results with nonsmooth optimisation test problems are presented and different smoothing techniques are compared using these results. Finally, we demonstrate the application of smoothing techniques for solving some problems in data mining.
