## A second order dynamical approach with variable damping to nonconvex smooth minimization

We investigate a second order dynamical system with variable damping in connection with the minimization of a nonconvex differentiable function. The dynamical system is formulated in the spirit of the differential equation which models Nesterov’s accelerated convex gradient method. We show that the generated trajectory converges to a critical point, if a regularization of the … Read more
