Lifting mathematical programs with complementarity constraints

Stein, O.

We present a new smoothing approach for mathematical programs with complementarity constraints, based on the orthogonal projection of a smooth manifold. We study regularity of the lifted feasible set and, since the corresponding optimality conditions are inherently degenerate, introduce a regularization approach involving a novel concept of tilting stability. A correspondence between the C-index in the original problem and the quadratic index in the lifted problem is shown. In particular, a local minimizer of the mathematical program with complementarity constraints may numerically be found by minimization of the lifted, smooth problem. We report preliminary computational experience with the lifting approach.
