The hyperplane Hu : +x : 1u, x2 : s(u), helps C at xu . the space from Hu to zero is the same as s(u/#u#). workout 1. thirteen. enable C be a nonempty closed convex set C " RL. enable s be the help functionality of C with nonempty area D. exhibit that C : +x : 1u, x2 - s(u) for all u in D,. trace: another deﬁnition of C is C : 7 +x : 1u, x2 - s(u), u ﬁxed in D,, u+D and notice workout II. four. 6. 102 CONVEX features 2. SUBGRADIENTS If f is a real-valued functionality deﬁned on a collection C in RL, then the graph of f is the set of issues (x, z) in RL> of the shape (x, f (x)), the place x + C. If f is a differentiable functionality, then given some extent x within the inside of C, the graph of f has a tangent airplane at (x , f (x )) whose basic vector is ( f (x ), 91). If C is convex and f is convex, f don't need to be differentiable at an inside aspect of C, because the functionality f deﬁned via f (x) : "x" indicates. during this part we will introduce a generalization of the gradient vector, known as the subgradient, that exists at issues (x, f (x)) of the graph of a convex functionality f, the place x is an inside aspect of C. we will exhibit that if f is a convex functionality deﬁned on C and x is an inside element of C, then epi( f ) has a aiding hyperplane on the element (x, f (x)). The helping hyperplane needn't be precise. within the subsequent part we will convey that f is differentiable at x if and provided that f has a special subgradient at x. This subgradient seems to be f (x). hence, if f is differentiable at x, there's a targeted helping hyperplane to epi( f ) at (x, f (x)). This hyperplane is the tangent airplane to the graph at (x, f (x)). If ( , ninety one) is a regular vector to a aiding hyperplane, then has many of the houses that the gradient vector could have. We now deﬁne the concept of subgradient. Deﬁnition 2. 1. A functionality f deﬁned on a suite C is expounded to have a subgradient at some extent x in C if there exists a vector in RL such that f (x) . f (x ) ; 1 , x nine x 2 for all x + C. The vector is termed a subgradient. Geometrically, is a subgradient of f at x if the graph of f in RL> lies on or above the graph of the hyperplane y : f (x );1 , x9x 2. considering (x , f (x )) is during this hyperplane, this hyperplane may be a aiding hyperplane to epi( f ) at (x , f (x )). therefore, the life of a subgradient is a press release in regards to the life of a nonvertical helping hyperplane to epi( f ). In determine three. five we illustrate the deﬁnition with the functionality f (x) : "x" at x : zero. Any line throughout the starting place with slope pleasurable ninety one - - 1 has the valuables that "x" . x : "0" ; (x nine zero) for all x. therefore any within the period [91, 1] is a subgradient of "x" at x : zero. If x nine zero, then : 1 is the one subgradient of "x" at x ; if x : zero, then : ninety one is the single subgradient of "x" at x . Deﬁnition 2. 2. The set of subgradients of a functionality f at some degree x is named the subdifferential of f at x and is denoted by way of *f (x ). SUBGRADIENTS 103 determine three. five. The subdifferential of "x" at x : zero is the period [91, 1]. The subdifferential of "x" at x nine zero is the singleton +1,, and the subdifferential at x : zero is +91,.
