An alternating linearization method with inexact data, for the bilevel problem of minimizing a nonsmooth convex function over the optimal solution set of another nonsmooth convex problem, is presented in this paper. The problem is first approximately transformed into an unconstrained optimization with the help of a penalty function and we prove that the penalty function admits exact penalization under some mild conditions. The objective function of this unconstrained problem is the sum of two nonsmooth convex functions and in the algorithm each iteration involves solving two easily solved subproblems. It is shown that the iterative sequence converges to a solution of the original problem by parametric minimization theorem. Numerical experiments validate the theoretical convergence analysis and illustrate the implementation of the alternating linearization algorithm for this bilevel program.

This paper deals with a boundary-value problem for a coupled chemotaxis-Stokes system with logistic source
 $\begin{eqnarray*}\left\{\begin{array}{llll}n_t+u·\nabla n = \nabla·(D(n)\nabla n)-\nabla·(n \mathcal{S}(x, n, c)·\nabla c)\\ +ξ n-μ n^{2}, &x∈ Ω, &t>0, \\c_{t}+u·\nabla c = Δ c-c+n, &x∈Ω, &t>0, \\u_{t}+\nabla P = Δ u+n\nablaφ, &x∈Ω, &t>0, \\\nabla· u = 0, &x∈Ω, &t>0\end{array}\right.\end{eqnarray*}$
in three-dimensional smoothly bounded domains, where the parameters $ξ\ge0$, $μ>0$ and $φ∈ W^{1, ∞}(Ω)$, $D$ is a given function satisfying $D(n)\ge C_{D}n^{m-1}$ for all $n>0$ with $m>0$ and $C_{D}>0$. $\mathcal{S}$ is a given function with values in $\mathbb{R}^{3×3}$ which fulfills
 $\begin{equation*}{\label{1.3}}\begin{split}|\mathcal{S}(x, n, c)|\leq C_{\mathcal{S}}(1+n)^{-α}\end{split}\end{equation*}$
with some $C_{\mathcal{S}}>0$ and $α>0$. It is proved that for all reasonably regular initial data, global weak solutions exist whenever $m+2α>\frac{6}{5}$. This extends a recent result by Liu el at. (J. Diff. Eqns, 261 (2016) 967-999) which asserts global existence of weak solutions under the constraints $m+α>\frac{6}{5}$ and $m\ge\frac{1}{3}$.

In this paper, we consider using the inexact nonsmooth Newton method to efficiently solve the symmetric cone constrained variational inequality (VISCC) problem. It red provides a unified framework for dealing with the variational inequality with nonlinear constraints, variational inequality with the second-order cone constraints, and the variational inequality with semidefinite cone constraints. We get convergence of the above method and apply the results to three special types symmetric cones.
