  • second-order subdifferential, polyhedral norms


We derive formulae for the second-order subdifferential of polyhedral norms. These formulae are fully explicit in terms of initial data. In a first step we rely on the explicit formula for the coderivative of normal cone mapping to polyhedra. Though being explicit, this formula is quite involved and difficult to apply. Therefore, we derive simple formulae for the 1-norm and -- making use of a recently obtained formula for the second-order subdifferential of the maximum function -- for the maximum norm.
