On the use of augmented Lagrangians in the solution of generalized semi-infinite min-max problems
MetadataShow full item record
We present an approach for the solution of a class of generalized semi-infinite optimization problems. Our approach uses augmented Lagrangians to transform generalized semi-infinite min-max problems into ordinary semi-infinite min-max problems, with the same set of local and global solutions as well as the same stationary points. Once the transformation is effected, the generalized semi-infinite min-max problems can be solved using any available semi-infinite optimization algorithm. We illustrate our approach with two numerical examples, one of which deals with structural design subject to reliability constraints.

Finite Element Analysis of Time-Dependent Semi-Infinite Wave-Guides with High-Order Boundary Treatment Neta, Beny; Givoli, Dan; Patlashenko, Igor (2003-02);A new Finite Element (FE) scheme is proposed for the solution of time-dependent semi- infinite wave-guide problems, in dispersive or non-dispersive media. The semi-infinite do- main is truncated via an artificial boundary ...
