In this paper, we study a sliding mode observer for a class of set-valued Lur'e systems subject to uncertainties. We show that our approach has obvious advantages than the existing Luenberger-like observers. Furthermore, we provide an effective continuous approximation to eliminate the chattering effect in the sliding mode technique.

In this paper, we propose to solve Pareto eigenvalue complementarity problems by using interior-point methods. Precisely, we focus the study on an adaptation of the Mehrotra Predictor Corrector Method (MPCM) and a Non-Parametric Interior Point Method (NPIPM). We compare these two methods with two alternative methods, namely the Lattice Projection M...

We compare in this note a variety of methods for solving inverse Pareto eigenvalue problems which are aimed at constructing matrices whose Pareto spectrum contains a prescribed set of distinct reals. We choose to deal with such problems by first formulating them as nonlinear systems of equations which can be smooth or nonsmooth, depending on the ch...

The present paper investigates the sensitivity analysis, with respect to right-hand source term perturbations, of a scalar Tresca-type problem. This simplified, but nontrivial, model is inspired from the (vectorial) Tresca friction problem found in contact mechanics. The weak formulation of the considered problem leads to a variational inequality o...

We study a mechanical system with a finite number of degrees of freedom, subjected to perfect time-dependent frictionless unilateral (possibly nonconvex) constraints with inelastic collisions on active constraints. The dynamic is described in the form of a second-order measure differential inclusion. Under some regularity assumptions on the data, w...

In this paper we provide a Pontryagin maximum principle for optimal sampled-data control problems with nonsmooth Mayer cost function. Our investigation leads us to consider, in a first place, a general issue on convex sets separation. Precisely, thanks to the classical Fan's minimax theorem, we establish the existence of a universal separating vect...

In a Hilbert space $\mathcal{H}$ H , we study a dynamic inertial Newton method which aims to solve additively structured monotone equations involving the sum of potential and nonpotential terms. Precisely, we are looking for the zeros of an operator $A= \nabla f +B $ A = ∇ f + B , where ∇ f is the gradient of a continuously differentiable convex fu...

In this paper, we provide a new application of the Douglas–Rachford splitting method for finding a zero of the sum of two maximal monotone operators where one of them depends implicitly on the state variable. Our proposed algorithms are much simpler with better rate of convergence than existing results and can be implemented under general condition...

In a Hilbert space \( {\mathcal H}\), we introduce a new class of first-order algorithms which naturally occur as discrete temporal versions of an inertial differential inclusion jointly involving viscous friction and dry friction. The function \(f:{\mathcal H}\rightarrow {\mathbb {R}}\) to be minimized is supposed to be differentiable (not necessa...

It is well known that modeling friction forces is a complex problem and constitutes an important topic in both mechanical engineering and applied mathematics. In this paper, we show how the approach of Moreau and Panagiotopoulos can be used to develop a suitable methodology for the formulation and the mathematical analysis of various friction model...

Many physical phenomena can be modeled as a feedback connection of a linear dynamical systems combined with a nonlinear function which satisfies a sector condition. The concept of absolute stability, proposed by Lurie and Postnikov (Appl Math Mech 8(3), 1944) in the early 1940s, constitutes an important tool in the theory of control systems. Lurie...

This paper is devoted to nonconvex/prox-regular separations of sets in Hilbert spaces. We introduce the Legendre-Fenchel r-conjugate of a prescribed function and r-quadratic support functionals and points of a given set, all associated to a positive constant r. By means of these concepts we obtain nonlinear functional separations for points and pro...

We give new criteria for weak and strong invariant closed sets for differential inclusions in \(\mathbb {R}^{n}\), and which are simultaneously governed by Lipschitz Cusco mapping and by maximal monotone operators. Correspondingly, we provide different characterizations for the associated strong Lyapunov functions and pairs. The resulting condition...

This paper is devoted to the study of sensitivity to perturbation of parametrized variational inclusions involving maximally monotone operators in a Hilbert space. The perturbation of all the data involved in the problem is taken into account. Using the concept of proto-differentiability of a multifunction and the notion of semi-differentiability o...

In this paper, we present diverse new metric properties that prox-regular sets shared with convex ones. At the heart of our work lie the Legendre-Fenchel transform and complements of balls. First, we show that a connected prox-regular set is completely determined by the Legendre-Fenchel transform of a suitable perturbation of its indicator function...

The main concern of this paper is the study of degenerate sweeping process involving uniform prox-regular sets via an unconstrained differential inclusion by showing that the sets of solutions of the two problems coincide. This principle of reduction to unconstrained evolution problem can be seen as a penalization of the subdifferential of the dist...

In a Hilbert space H, we introduce a new class of proximal-gradient algorithms with finite convergence properties. These algorithms naturally occur as discrete temporal versions of an inertial differential inclusion which is damped under the joint action of three dampings: a viscous damping, a geometric damping driven by the Hessian and a dry frict...

In this paper, we provide a new application of the Douglas-Rachford
splitting method for finding a zero of the sum of two maximal monotone operators where one of them depends implicitly on the state variable. Our proposed algorithms are much simpler with better rate of convergence than existing results and can be implemented under general condition...

The aim of the present work is to provide an explicit decomposition formula for the resolvent operator \(\mathrm {J}_{A+B}\) of the sum of two set-valued maps A and B in a Hilbert space. For this purpose we introduce a new operator, called the A-resolvent operator of B and denoted by \(\mathrm {J}^A_B\), which generalizes the usual notion. Then, ou...

In this paper, we study the existence and the stability in the sense of Lyapunov of differential inclusions governed by the normal cone to a given prox-regular set, which is subject to a Lipschitzian perturbation. We prove that such apparently more general non-smooth dynamics can be indeed remodeled into the classical theory of differential inclusi...

We present an extended conjugate duality for a generalized semi-infinite programming problem (P). The extended duality is defined in the context of the absence of convexity of problem (P), by means of a decomposition into a family of convex subproblems and a conjugate dualization of the subproblems. Under appropriate assumptions, we establish stron...

This paper deals with the existence and uniqueness of solutions for a class of state-dependent sweeping processes with constrained velocity in Hilbert spaces without using any compactness assumption, which is known to be an open problem. To overcome the difficulty, we introduce a new notion called hypomonotonicity-like of the normal cone to the mov...

The main concern of this paper is to investigate sensitivity properties of parametric evolution systems of first order involving a general class of nonconvex functions.

Such conditions can be viewed as an extension of t...

In this paper, we study the existence of solutions for a time and state-dependent discontinuous nonconvex second order sweeping process with a multivalued perturbation. The moving set is assumed to be prox-regular, relatively ball-compact with a bounded variation. The perturbation of the normal cone is a scalarly upper semicontinuous convex valued...

We consider a class of time-dependent inclusions in Hilbert spaces for which we state and prove an existence and uniqueness result. The proof is based on arguments of variational inequalities, convex analysis and fixed point theory. Then, we use this result to prove the unique weak solvability of a new class of Moreau’s sweeping processes with cons...

The main concern of this paper is to investigate the Lipschitzian-like stability property (namely Aubin property) of the solution map of possibly nonmonotone variational systems with composite superpotentials. Using Mordukhovich coderivative criterion and a second-order subdifferential analysis, we provide simple and verifiable characterizations of...

We first give criteria for weak Lyapunov functions associated to differential inclusions, given in ℝ ⁿ and governed by Lipschitz Cusco perturbations of maximal monotone operators. Next, we apply this result to study the existence and stability of differential inclusions involving normal cones to prox-regular sets.

In this note, by solving a variational inequality at each iteration, we study the existence of solutions for a class of sweeping processes with velocity in the moving set, originally introduced in a recent paper (Adly et al. in Math Program Ser B 148(1):5–47, 2014). Our aim is to improve Adly et al. (2014, Theorem 5.1) to allow possibly unbounded m...

In this paper, we study the quasi-Newton method by using set-valued approximations for solving generalized equations without smoothness assumptions. The set-valued approximations appear naturally when dealing with nonsmooth problems, or even in smooth cases, data in almost concrete applications are not exact. We present a generalization of the clas...

The main result of the present theoretical paper is an original decomposition formula for the proximal operator of the sum of two proper, lower semicontinuous and convex functions f and g. For this purpose, we introduce a new operator, called f-proximal operator of g and denoted by proxfg, that generalizes the classical notion. Then we prove the de...

In this paper, we present a duality approach using conjugacy for a semivectorial bilevel programming problem (S) where the upper and lower levels are vectorial and scalar respectively. This approach uses the Fenchel-Lagrange duality and is given via a regularization of problem (S) and the operation of scalarization. Then, using this approach we pro...

In this paper, we deal firstly with the question of the stability of the metric regularity under set-valued perturbation. By adopting the measure of closeness between two multifunctions, we establish some stability results on the semi-local/local metric regularity. These results are applied to study the convergence of iterative schemes of Newton-ty...

In this paper, the existence of solutions for a class of first and second order unbounded state-dependent sweeping processes with perturbation in uniformly convex and q-uniformly smooth Banach spaces are analyzed by using a discretization method. The sweeping process is a particular differential inclusion with a normal cone to a moving set and is o...

We give different conditions for the invariance of closed sets with respect to differential inclusions governed by a maximal monotone operator defined on Hilbert spaces, which is subject to a Lipschitz continuous perturbation depending on the state. These sets are not necessarily weakly closed as in , while the invariance criteria are still written...

The paper deals with a strong-weak nonlinear bilevel problem which generalizes the well-known weak and strong ones. In general, the study of the existence of solutions to such a problem is a difficult task. So that, for a strong-weak nonlinear bilevel prob- lem, we first give a regularization based on the use of strict ε-solutions of the lower leve...

In this paper we give a conjugate duality approach for a strong bilevel programming problem (S). The approach is based on the use of a regularization of problem (S) and the so-called Fenchel-Lagrange duality. We first show that the regularized problem of (S) admits solutions and any accumulation point of a sequence of regularized solutions solves (...

We study a precomposition of a maximal monotone operator with linear mappings, which preserves the maximal monotonicity in the setting of reflexive Banach spaces. Instead of using the adjoint of such linear operators, as in the usual precomposition, we consider a more general situation involving operators which satisfy the so-called passivity condi...

of the so-called sweeping process, introduced by Moreau in the early 70s (Moreau
in Sém Anal Convexe Montpellier, 1971) with motivation in plasticity theory. The
first new variant is concerned with the perturbation of the normal cone to the moving
convex subset C(t), suppos...

We give conditions under which the distance from a point x to the set of fixed points of the composition of the set-valued mappings F and G is bounded by a constant times the smallest distance between F −1(x) and G(x). This estimate allows us to significantly sharpen a result by T.-C. Lim [1010.

This article deals with a generalized semi-infinite programming problem (S). Under appropriate assumptions, for such a problem we give necessary and sufficient optimality conditions via reverse convex problems. In particular, a necessary and sufficient optimality condition reduces the problem (S) to a min-max problem constrained with compact convex...

In this paper, we study numerical methods for solving eigenvalue complementarity problems involving the product of second-order cones (or Lorentz cones).
