In this paper we reformulate the generalized Nash equilibrium problem (GNEP) as a nonsmooth Nash equilibrium problem by means of a partial penalization of the difficult coupling constraints. We then propose a suitable method for the solution of the penalized problem and we study classes of GNEPs for which the penalty approach is guaranteed to converge to a solution. In particular, we are able to prove convergence for an interesting class of GNEPs for which convergence results were previously unknown. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC. 2010.
