Splitted Levenberg-Marquardt Method for Large-Scale Sparse Problems

We consider large-scale nonlinear least squares problems with sparse residuals, each of them depending on a small number of variables. A decoupling procedure which results in a splitting of the original problems into a sequence of independent problems of smaller sizes is proposed and analysed. The smaller size problems are modified in a way that … Read more

Strong local convergence properties of adaptive regularized methods for nonlinear least-squares

This paper studies adaptive regularized methods for nonlinear least-squares problems where the model of the objective function used at each iteration is either the Euclidean residual regularized by a quadratic term or the Gauss-Newton model regularized by a cubic term. For suitable choices of the regularization parameter the role of the regularization term is to … Read more
