Abstract: In this paper, we study the sequential convex programming method with monotone line search (SCPls) in [46] for a class of difference-of-convex (DC) optimization problems with multiple smooth inequality constraints. The SCPls is a representative variant of moving-ball-approximationtype algorithms [6, 10, 13, 54] for constrained optimization problems. We analyze the convergence rate of the sequence generated by SCPls in both nonconvex and convex settings by imposing suitable Kurdyka- Lojasiewicz (KL) assumptions. Specifically, in the nonconvex settings, we assume that a special potential function related to the objective and the constraints is a KL function, while in the convex settings we impose KL assumptions directly on the extended objective function (i.e., sum of the objective and the indicator function of the constraint set). A relationship between these two different KL assumptions is established in the convex settings under additional differentiability assumptions. We also discuss how to deduce the KL exponent of the extended objective function from its Lagrangian in the convex settings, under additional assumptions on the constraint functions. Thanks to this result, the extended objectives of some constrained optimization models such as minimizing `1 subject to logistic/Poisson loss are found to be KL functions with exponent 1 2 under mild assumptions. To illustrate how our results can be applied, we consider SCPls for minimizing `1−2 [60] subject to residual error measured by `2 norm/Lorentzian norm [21]. We first discuss how the various conditions required in our analysis can be verified, and then perform numerical experiments to illustrate the convergence behaviors of SCPls.
