## Gradient methods exploiting spectral properties

We propose a new stepsize for the gradient method. It is shown that this new stepsize will converge to the reciprocal of the largest eigenvalue of the Hessian, when Dai-Yang’s asymptotic optimal gradient method (Computational Optimization and Applications, 2006, 33(1): 73-88) is applied for minimizing quadratic objective functions. Based on this spectral property, we develop … Read more
