174 ISE 5406 Topic #15: Intro to KKT Conditions BSS Textbook Reading: Section 4.2 We now present the KKT conditions for inequality constrained problems. KKT points are a subset of Fritz John points where the Lagrange multiplier for the objective gradient is required to be positive. Motivation Recall that we are dealing with a problem of the following form, where , , and all functions are assumed to be continuous and differentiable. minimize subject to for We expressed the Fritz John conditions as follows, where ̅ is the set of binding constraints at ̅ . ̅ ∑ ̅ ̅ with ( ̅ ) , As we discussed, there are a number of Fritz John points that do not correspond to local minima. In particular, one of the drawbacks of the Fritz John conditions is that the gradients of the binding constraints can cancel each other out. This allows the Lagrange multiplier for objective gradient to be zero, and effectively makes the objective function irrelevant to the dual feasibility conditions. We would like to ignore the Fritz John points for which is necessarily equal to zero. Instead, we will focus on the Fritz John points where there exists a set of Lagrangian multipliers with . Without loss of generality, we will require .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
