Abstract

McCormick [Math. Progr. 1976] provided the framework for the computation of convex relaxations of composite functions g=F(f(z)) with F a univariate function. Given a convex relaxation of F, Fcv and convex and concave relaxations of f, fcv and fcc respectively, McCormick calculates the convex relaxation of g, as

This allows the relaxation of so-called factorable functions. We discuss the construction ...
