The paper develops a nonconvex bundle method based on the downshift mechanism and a proximity control management technique to solve nonconvex nonsmooth constrained optimization problems. We prove its global convergence in the sense of subsequences for both classes of lower-C1 and upper-C1 functions.
Keywords: Nonsmooth optimization, constrained optimization, bundle method, lower-C1 function, upper-C1 function.
