# 5.7. pyopus.problems.lvns — Lukšan-Vlček set of nonsmooth problems¶ Nonsmooth test functions by Lukšan and Vlček (PyOPUS subsystem name: LVNS)

This module is independent of PyOPUS, meaning that it can be taken as is and used as a module in some other package. It depends only on the cpi and the _lvns modules.

The code in the binary module shares variables. Therefore the function should be created and then used immediately. Creating another function may change the previously created one. This sucks, but what can you do? I know! Rewrite the FORTRAN code :)

class pyopus.problems.lvns.LCMM(name=None, number=None)[source]

Linearly constrained minimax problems from the Lukšan-Vlček test suite.

• name - problem name

• number - problem number (0-14)

Attributes:

• name - problem name

• n - number of variables

• m - number of partial functions

• nc - number of linear constraints

• xl - lower bounds on variables

• xh - upper bounds on variables

• cl - lower bounds on constraint functions

• ch - upper bounds on constraint functions

• Jc - Jacobian of constraints, one row per constraint

• initial - initial values of variables

• fmin - best known minimum

All test functions in this module are maps from $$R^n$$ to $$R$$. Every function is comprised of m partial functions

$f_1(x) ... f_m(x)$

where x is a n-dimensional vector.

The actual test function is then constructed as

$f(x) = \max_{i=1}^m f_i(x)$

or

$f(x) = \max_{i=1}^m \left| f_i(x) \right|$

The nc constraints are linear and are of the form

$cl \leq c(x) \leq ch$

Beside linear constraints a problem can also have bounds of the form

$xl \leq x \leq xh$
c(x)[source]

Returns the values of the constraint functions at x.

cpi()[source]

Returns the common problem interface.

Gradient is not supported. Anyway it is valid only where the functions are smooth.

xmin is also not available.

See the CPI class for more information.

f(x)[source]

Returns the value of the function at x.

fi(x, i=None)[source]

Returns the value of the i-th partial function at x. If i is not given a vector of all partial functions is returned.

names = ['MAD1', 'MAD2', 'MAD4', 'MAD5', 'PENTAGON', 'MAD6', 'EQUIL', 'Wong2', 'Wong3', 'MAD8', 'BPfilter', 'HS114', 'Dembo3', 'Dembo5', 'Dembo7']

List of all function names

setup()[source]

Initializes the binary implementation of the function. After this function is called no other function from the same test set may be created or initialized because that will change the internal variables and break the function. Returns an info structure.

class pyopus.problems.lvns.UMM(name=None, number=None)[source]

Unconstrained minimax problems from the Lukšan-Vlček test suite.

• name - problem name

• number - problem number (0-24)

Attributes:

• name - problem name

• n - number of variables

• m - number of partial functions

• initial - initial values of variables

• fmin - best known minimum

All test functions in this class are maps from $$R^n$$ to $$R$$. Every function is comprised of m partial functions

$f_1(x) ... f_m(x)$

where x is a n-dimensional vector.

The actual test function is then constructed as

$f(x) = \max_{i=1}^m f_i(x)$

$f(x) = \max_{i=1}^m \left| f_i(x) \right|$

f(x)[source]

Returns the value of the function at x.

fi(x, i=None)[source]

Returns the value of the i-th partial function at x. If i is not given a vector of all partial functions is returned.

class pyopus.problems.lvns.UNS(name=None, number=None)[source]

Unconstrained nonsmooth problems from the Lukšan-Vlček test suite.

• name - problem name

• number - problem number (0-24)

Attributes:

• name - problem name

• n - number of variables

• initial - initial values of variables

• fmin - best known minimum

All test functions in this module are maps from $$R^n$$ to $$R$$. Gradients are valid only where the functions are smooth (continuously differentiable).

cpi()[source]

Returns the common problem interface.

Gradient is not supported because it is untested at this time. Anyway it is valid only where the functions are smooth.

xmin is also not available.

See the CPI class for more information.

f(x)[source]

Returns the value of the function at x.
