On the evaluation complexity of constrained nonlinear least-squares and general constrained nonlinear optimization using second-order methods

When solving the general smooth nonlinear optimization problem involving equality and/or inequality constraints, an approximate first-order critical point of accuracy $\epsilon$ can be obtained by a second-order method using cubic regularization in at most $O(\epsilon^{-3/2})$ problem-functions evaluations, the same order bound as in the unconstrained case. This result is obtained by first showing that the … Read more
