Second-order sufficient condition and quadratic growth condition play important roles both in sensitivity and stability analysis and in numerical analysis for optimization problems. In this article, we concentrate on the global quadratic growth condition and study its relations with global second-order sufficient conditions for min-max optimization problems with quadratic functions. In general, the global second-order sufficient condition implies the global quadratic growth condition. In the case of two quadratic functions involved, we have the equivalence of the two conditions.
