Abstract: We propose a method to solve nonlinear second-order cone programs (SOCPs), based on a continuously differentiable exact penalty function. The construction of the penalty function is given by incorporating a multipliers estimate in the augmented Lagrangian for SOCPs. Under the nondegeneracy assumption and the strong second-order sufficient condition, we show that a generalized Newton method has global and superlinear convergence. We also present some preliminary numerical experiments.

Keywords: Nonlinear second-order cone program, exact penalty functions, semismooth reformulation, generalized Newton method.
