An adaptive cubic regularisation algorithm for nonconvex optimization with convex constraints and its function-evaluation complexity

The adaptive cubic overestimation algorithm described in Cartis, Gould and Toint (2007) is adapted to the problem of minimizing a nonlinear, possibly nonconvex, smooth objective function over a convex domain. Convergence to first-order critical points is shown under standard assumptions, but without any Lipschitz continuity requirement on the objective’s Hessian. A worst-case complexity analysis in … Read more
