Nonsmoothed merit function

Specification

Alias: none

Argument(s): none

Description

APPS solves nonlinearly constrained problems by solving a sequence of linearly constrained merit function-base subproblems. There are several exact and smoothed exact penalty functions.

merit2_squared: based on $ \ell_2^2$ norm
