6 Optimality constrained For every x, y dom f, we have f (y) f (x) + f (x), y x. Thus, x is optimal if and only if f (x ), y x 0, for all y X. Suvrit Sra Optimization for Machine Learning 5 / 36
7 Optimality constrained For every x, y dom f, we have f (y) f (x) + f (x), y x. Thus, x is optimal if and only if f (x ), y x 0, for all y X. If X = R n, this reduces to f (x ) = 0 f(x) X x f(x ) x If f (x ) 0, it defines supporting hyperplane to X at x Suvrit Sra Optimization for Machine Learning 5 / 36
