A Riemannian smoothing steepest descent method for non-Lipschitz optimization on submanifolds

04/09/2021 ∙ by Chao Zhang, et al. ∙ 0

In this paper, we propose a Riemannian smoothing steepest descent method to minimize a nonconvex and non-Lipschitz function on submanifolds. The generalized subdifferentials on Riemannian manifold and the Riemannian gradient sub-consistency are defined and discussed. We prove that any accumulation point of the sequence generated by the Riemannian smoothing steepest descent method is a stationary point associated with the smoothing function employed in the method, which is necessary for the local optimality of the original non-Lipschitz problem. Under the Riemannian gradient sub-consistency condition, we also prove that any accumulation point is a Riemannian limiting stationary point of the original non-Lipschitz problem. Numerical experiments are conducted to demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed method.
