# Category:Equilibrium constraints

From mintOC

This category contains mathematical programs with equilibrium constraints (MPECs). An MPEC is an optimization problem constrained by a variational inequality, which takes for generic variables / functions the following general form:

where is the feasible region for the variational inequality and given function . Variational inequalities arise in many domains and are generally referred to as equilibrium constraints. The variables and may be controls or states.

Complementarity constraints and vanishing constraints are special cases.
