A practical method for solving large-scale TRS

We present a nearly-exact method for the large scale trust region subproblem (TRS) based on the properties of the minimal-memory BFGS method. Our study in concentrated in the case where the initial BFGS matrix can be any scaled identity matrix. The proposed method is a variant of the Mor\'{e}-Sorensen method that exploits the eigenstructure of … Read more

A 2-BFGS updating in a trust region framework

We present a new matrix-free method for the trust region subproblem, assuming that the approximate Hessian is updated by the limited memory BFGS formula with m = 2. The resulting updating scheme, called 2-BFGS, give us the ability to determine via simple formulas the eigenvalues of the resulting approximation. Thus, at each iteration, we can … Read more
