In this paper, we analyze the convergence properties of a nonlinear Lagrangian method based on Log-Sigmoid function for nonconvex semidefinite programming (NCSDP) problems. It is different from other convergence analysis, because the subproblem in our algorithm is inexactly solved. Under the constraint nondegeneracy condition, the strict complementarity condition and the second order sufficient conditions, it is obtained that the nonlinear Lagrangian algorithm proposed is locally convergent by choosing a proper stopping criterion and the error bound of solution is proportional to the penalty parameter when the penalty parameter is less than a threshold.

We present a nonlinear Lagrangian method for nonconvex semidefinite programming. This nonlinear Lagrangian is generated by a Löwner operator associated with Log-Sigmoid function. Under a set of assumptions, we prove a convergence theorem, which shows that the nonlinear Lagrangian algorithm is locally convergent when the penalty parameter is less than a threshold and the error bound of the solution is proportional to the penalty parameter.

In this paper, we discuss a system of differential equations based on the projection operator for solving the box constrained variational inequality problems. The equilibrium solutions to the differential equation system are proved to be the solutions of the box constrained variational inequality problems. Two differential inclusion problems associated with the system of differential equations are introduced. It is proved that the equilibrium solution to the differential equation system is locally asymptotically stable by verifying the locally asymptotical stability of the equilibrium positions of the differential inclusion problems. An Euler discrete scheme with Armijo line search rule is introduced and its global convergence is demonstrated. The numerical experiments are reported to show that the Euler method is effective.

In this paper we propose a new type of $\theta$-scheme with four parameters ($\{\theta_i\}_{i=1}^4$) for solving the backward stochastic differential equation $-dy_t=f(t,y_t,z_t) dt - z_t dW_t$. We rigorously prove some error estimates for the proposed scheme, and in particular, we show that accuracy of the scheme can be high by choosing proper parameters. Various numerical examples are also presented to verify the theoretical results.
