In fresh years a lot realization has been given to the improvement of vehicle matic platforms of making plans, layout and regulate in quite a few branches of the nationwide economic climate. caliber of selections is a controversy which has come to the vanguard, expanding the importance of optimization algorithms in math ematical software program applications for al,ltomatic platforms of varied degrees and pur poses. tools for minimizing features with discontinuous gradients are gaining in significance and the ~xperts within the computational tools of mathematical programming are inclined to agree that growth within the improvement of algorithms for minimizing nonsmooth features is the main to the con struction of effective suggestions for fixing huge scale difficulties. This monograph summarizes to a undeniable quantity fifteen years of the author's paintings on constructing generalized gradient tools for nonsmooth minimization. This paintings all started within the division of monetary cybernetics of the Institute of Cybernetics of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences below the supervision of V.S. Mikhalevich, a member of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences, in reference to the necessity for ideas to special, sensible difficulties of optimum making plans and layout. In Chap. I we describe uncomplicated periods of nonsmooth capabilities which are dif ferentiable nearly far and wide, and study numerous methods of defining generalized gradient units. In Chap. 2 we examine intimately numerous types of the su bgradient strategy, exhibit their relation to the tools of Fejer-type approximations and in brief current the basics of e-subgradient methods.
