A Wide Interval for Efficient Self-Scaling Quasi-Newton Algorithms

This paper uses certain conditions for the global and superlinear convergence of the two-parameter self-scaling Broyden family of quasi-Newton algorithms for unconstraiend optimization to derive a wide interval for self-scaling updates. Numerical testing shows that such algorithms not only accelerate the convergence of the (unscaled) methods from the so-called convex class, but increase their chances … Read more
