This is a companion paper to “Ghost penalties in nonconvex constrained optimization: Diminishing stepsizes and iteration complexity" (to appear in Mathematics of Operations Research). We consider the ghost penalty scheme for nonconvex, constrained optimization introduced in that paper, coupled with a diminishing stepsize procedure. Under an extended Mangasarian-Fromovitz-type constraint qualification we give an expression for the maximum number of iterations needed to achieve a given solution accuracy according to a natural stationarity measure, thus establishing the first result of this kind for a diminishing stepsize method for nonconvex, constrained optimization problems.
