Constrained Dogleg Methods for nonlinear systems with simple bounds

We focus on the numerical solution of medium scale bound-constrained systems of nonlinear equations. In this context, we consider an affine-scaling trust region approach that allows a great flexibility in choosing the scaling matrix used to handle the bounds. The method is based on a dogleg procedure tailored for constrained problems and so, it is … Read more

On affine scaling inexact dogleg methods for bound-constrained nonlinear systems

A class of trust-region methods for large scale bound-constrained systems of nonlinear equations is presented. The methods in this class follow the so called affine-scaling approach and can efficiently handle large scale problems. At each iteration, a suitably scaled region around the current approximate solution is defined and, within such a region, the norm of … Read more

Global Newton-type methods and semismooth reformulations for NCP

It is known that a nonlinear complementarity problem (NCP) can be reformulated as a semismooth system of nonlinear equations by using a so called NCP-function. Global Newton-type methods for solving NCP via semismooth reformulation need to use a merit function, which is usually required to be continuously differentiable. In this paper we present a global … Read more
