Abstract : The principal objectives of this research were to investigate theoretical and computational properties of sample-path optimization (SPO) and collateral areas in nonsmooth optimization including the solution of variational inequalities. The progress achieved was documented in seven papers prepared for publication in journals or in edited volumes. In addition, two Ph.D. dissertations now in preparation are expected to acknowledge support from this APOSR grant.
