## A Cubic Regularization of Newton’s Method with Finite-Difference Hessian Approximations

In this paper, we present a version of the Cubic Regularization of Newton’s method for unconstrained nonconvex optimization, in which the Hessian matrices are approximated by forward finite difference Hessians. The regularization parameter of the cubic models and the accuracy of the Hessian approximations are jointly adjusted using a nonmonotone line-search criterion. Assuming that the … Read more
