## A second derivative SQP method: local convergence

Gould and Robinson (NAR 08/18, Oxford University Computing Laboratory, 2008) gave global convergence results for a second-derivative SQP method for minimizing the exact $\ell_1$-merit function for a \emph{fixed} value of the penalty parameter. To establish this result, we used the properties of the so-called Cauchy step, which was itself computed from the so-called predictor step. … Read more
