### non convex, non linear optimization involving matrix differential equation solution

I'm trying to develop an inferential procedure for a multivariate dependent Markov process. Basically, the procedure could be considered as a non linear regression, with a known dependence structure ...

### Minimal surface finite differences problem - Matlab assemble

I face to the following problem: $$(1+u_x^2)u_{yy} - 2u_xu_yu_{xy} + (1+u_y^2)u_{xx}=0.$$ Problem needs to be discretized and assembled. Does anybody know how to proceed in Matlab?

### Nonconvex Optimization

Consider the following optimization problem: $\text{max}_{p} \quad ||p||^2 \\ s.t: x\geq 0\\ p\in D$ where $D$ is a convex set. Is this problem $\mathcal{NP}$-hard?

### Affect of approximating a non-differentiable function on optimisation of minimisation

I am looking at a problem of constrained minimization, where the function to be minimized contains the Heaviside function, and as such is not twice continuously differentiable. My question is what ...

### Non convex optimization

I have the following Max Min optimization problem that appears to be non convex. link where t p c are my variables and all others are constants. I took the eigen values of the hermetian part of the ...

### linear independence constraint qualification: what to do when they don't hold?

I want to solve a general nonlinear constrained optimization problem $$\min_q\ f(q)\quad \textrm{s.t.}\quad g_i(q) = 0,\ h_j(q) \geq 0.$$ The problem is that while the equality constraints $g_i(q)$ ...

### Global optimisation with discontinuous objective

I'm looking at a global minimisation problem on the $n$-sphere ($n$ of the order 10--50) but with a complete swine of an objective --- it is (effectively) a black box; it is piecewise smooth but with ...

### Reduction for NP-hardness [duplicate]

Consider the following optimization problem: \begin{align} \text{Min}_{i\neq j\neq s\neq t} |x_i x_j-x_sx_t|\\ s.t: Ax=b\\ x\geq 0; \end{align} This problem can be seen as an instance of non convex ...
I have the following problem in $x \in \mathbb C^{205}$ $$\displaystyle\min_{x}x^HAx$$ subject to the following constraints $$x^HBx = 1$$ $$x^HC_ix = 0$$ for $i \in \{0,1,\dots,203\}$, where $A$ ...
