Class AVI

Defined in Program listing for file kernel/src/simulationTools/AVI.hpp

class AVI : public LinearOSNS

Formalization and Resolution of an Affine Variational Inequality (AVI)

This class is devoted to the formalization and the resolution of Affine variational Inequalities (AVI): given a polytopic set \( P \), \( M\in R^{p\times p} \) and \( q\in R^p \),

\[ \text{find }z \in P\text{ such that}\quad \langle Mz+q, x - z\rangle \geq 0 \qquad \forall x \in P \]


: add “recover” function to start from old values of z and w.

For details regarding the available options, see Nonsmooth problems formulations and available solvers in users’ guide.
