Chen and Mangasarian (1995) developed smoothing approximations to the plus function built on integral-convolution with density functions. X. Chen (2012) has recently picked up this idea constructing a large class of smoothing functions for nonsmooth minimization through composition with smooth mappings. In this paper, we generalize this idea by substituting the plus function for an arbitrary finite max-function. Calculus rules such as inner and outer composition with smooth mappings are… CONTINUE READING
