# Convergence properties of a non-interior-point smoothing algorithm for the P*NCP

• In this paper, a non-interior-point smoothing algorithm is applied to solve the $P_*$ nonlinear complementarity problem (NCP). The algorithm is proved to be globally convergent under an assumption that the $P_*$ NCP has a nonempty solution set. In particular, the solution obtained by the algorithm is shown to be a maximally complementary solution of the $P_*$ NCP. The results we obtained strictly generalize the relative results appeared in the literature.
