## Regularized Sequential Quadratic Programming

We present the formulation and analysis of a new sequential quadratic programming (\SQP) method for general nonlinearly constrained optimization. The method pairs a primal-dual generalized augmented Lagrangian merit function with a \emph{flexible} line search to obtain a sequence of improving estimates of the solution. This function is a primal-dual variant of the augmented Lagrangian proposed … Read more
