On the convergence of some methods for variational inclusions

  • C. Jean-Alexis
  • A. Piétrus


In this paper, we study variational inclusions of the following form 0 ∈f(x) + g(x) + F(x) (*) wheref is differentiable in a neighborhood of a solutionx* of (*) andg is differentiable atx* and F is a set-valued mapping with closed graph acting in Banach spaces. The method introduced to solve (*) is superlinear and quadratic when ∇f is Lipschitz continuous.

Sobre la convergencia de algunos métodos para inclusiones variacionales


En este artículo se estudian inclusiones variacionales de la forma 0 ∈f(x) + g(x) + F(x) (*) dondef es diferenciable en un entorno de la soluciónx* de (*),g es diferenciable enx* yF es una aplicación con gráfica cerrada entre espacios de Banach. El método introducido para resolver (*) es superlineal y cuadrático cuando ∇f es continuo y verifica la condición de Lipschtz.
