Differentiability Properties of Metric Projections onto Convex Sets
It is known that directional differentiability of metric projection onto a closed convex set in a finite-dimensional space is not guaranteed. In this paper, we discuss sufficient conditions ensuring directional differentiability of such metric projections. The approach is based on a general theory of sensitivity analysis of parameterized optimization problems.
