## OFFO minimization algorithms for second-order optimality and their complexity

An Adagrad-inspired class of algorithms for smooth unconstrained optimization is presented in which the objective function is never evaluated and yet the gradient norms decrease at least as fast as O(1/\sqrt{k+1}) while second-order optimality measures converge to zero at least as fast as O(1/(k+1)^{1/3}). This latter rate of convergence is shown to be essentially sharp … Read more
