We derive a simple formula for the second-order subdifferential of the maximum of coordinates which allows us to construct this set immediately from its argument and the direction to which it is applied. This formula can be combined with a chain rule recently proved by Mordukhovich and Rockafellar [9] in order to derive a similarly simple formula for the extended partial second-order subdifferential of finite maxima of smooth functions. Analogous formulae can be derived immediately for the full… CONTINUE READING
