comment The eigenvalue of operator $-\Delta$
I do not get the question. As I read it, the $\lambda$s are independent of $u$…

comment How do I evaluate this integral
Sorry, but I still have no idea what kind of answer could help you. Please put more effort in to formulate a question. If $S$ is just some surface, $w$, $h$ are just some functions, $g$ is just some symmetric function, there is nothing I can do (besides obvious fiddlings with the terms). Also: Do you want a numerical solution or a analytical solution?

It's unclear what "simplified or solved" shall mean. Solve for what? What is not simple enough for your goals?

comment Relation between eigenvalues of $A$ and $A^TA$?
I was under the impression that you had in mind to make the matrix $A$ "numerically better" by adding $cI$. My remark should only point out that it's not that simple.

comment Relation between eigenvalues of $A$ and $A^TA$?
Are you aware that for $A = [0\ 1;1\ 0]$ it holds $\kappa(A) = 1$ but $\kappa(A+I) = \infty$?

comment Nuclear norm maximization
You should hope for too much: The orthogonality constraint is not linear and not even convex and also you are maximizing instead of minimizing. So your problem is in a very different realm of problems than the one where you want to go.

comment What's the relationship between the roots of a function and that of a filtered Fourier series representation?
Isn't your $M$ a linear combination of "unit step functions"/"square waves"? Since Fourier coefficients are linear, your truncated Fourier series is a linear combination of truncated Fourier series squares waves. At every step you get some Gibbs phenomenon and these add up. Do you expect anything more than that?

comment Is finding a local minimizer of a NP-hard optimization problem is still NP-hard
Now you have two contradicting answers that answer slightly but crucially different interpretations of your question.

comment Is finding a local minimizer of a NP-hard optimization problem is still NP-hard
I find this question much too vague and vote to close until it's phrased more carefully . First, not all problems are optimization problems, hence, asking for a "local minimizer of an NP-hard problem" does not make sense. Second, "NP-hardness" is not a property of some problem, but of some problem class. Third, it may well be that for some problem class global minimizers are hard to find while local minimizers aren't, but for some other problem class its different. Or are you looking for a specific result telling that "if global minimizers are NP-hard to find, then local minimizers too"?

comment state-of-art numerical contour (complex) integration method when contour is square and available values are evenly spaced
@CarloBeenakker Is this state of the art? Also, I would find it more comfortable if the link would point to some page where I can find authors, abstract, journal and so forth to decide whether I want to download a pdf. (In fact, one can deduce the journal, year and probably issue from the url but that's not that convenient.)

Since there are relevant comments here and at scicomp I suggest that the this question should be migrated to scicomp and there marked as a duplicate of the other.

comment Question on solving an optimization problem using Variable splitting and ADMM
Will ADMM and variable splitting solve this? I think you have to try this to get an answer. (Implementation seems straightforward and monitoring descent of the objective also. Checking second order sufficient conditions seems also possible…)

I guess $|x|$ is the euclidean norm in n dimensions...

Not sure if you answered the right question. Note that dimension of the domain is also $n$.

comment Question on solving an optimization problem using Variable splitting and ADMM
ADMM would builde the augmented Lagrangian for the problem and then alternatingly minimize between $v$ and $x$ with suitable update for the Lagrange multiplier. You may get intro trouble due to the nonlinear (in fact bilinear) constraint for $x$ (which I interpret componentwise, right?) resulting in a non-convex subproblem for the $x$ minimization (and also no convergence result I knows will be applicable).

This purpose of this comment is to make you aware that I see [Math Processing Error]s here.
