ACM721 Nonsmooth Analysis and Applications

[3–0, 3 cr.]

Topics covered are: Proximal analysis in Hilbert space (Proximal normals, subgradients, distance functions, etc.), generalized gradients in Banach space (basic calculus rules, relationship to Proximal analysis, Bouligand tangent cone, etc.), constrained optimization and value functions, application in control theory (nonsmooth feedback theory). Prerequisites: ACM701 and ACM720.
