A shifted Steihaug-Toint method for computing a trust-region step.

Trust-region methods are very convenient in connection with the Newton method for unconstrained optimization. The More-Sorensen direct method and the Steihaug-Toint iterative method are most commonly used for solving trust-region subproblems. We propose a method which combines both of these approaches. Using the small-size Lanczos matrix, we apply the More-Sorensen method to a small-size trust-region … Read more
