The smoothing Newton method for solving a system of nonsmooth equations F (x) = 0, which may arise from the nonlinear complementarity problem, the variational inequality problem or other problems, can be regarded as a variant of the smoothing method. At the kth step, the nonsmooth function F is approximated by a smooth function f(·, εk), and the derivative of f(·, εk) at xk is used as the Newton iterative matrix. The merits of smoothing methods and smoothing Newton methods are global… CONTINUE READING
