The symmetric cone complementarity problem (denoted by SCCP) provides a simple unified framework for various existing complementarity problems and has wide applications. Smoothing algorithms have been successfully applied to solve the SCCP, which in general have the global and local superlinear/quadratic convergence if the solution set of the SCCP is nonempty and bounded. We propose a new nonmonotone smoothing algorithm for solving the SCCP and prove that the algorithm is globally and locally superlinearly/quadratically convergent if the solution set of the SCCP is only nonempty, without requiring its boundedness. This convergence result is stronger than those obtained by most smoothing-type algorithms. Finally, some numerical results are reported.
