## Gradient Projection Methods for Quadratic Programs and Applications in Training Support Vector Machines

Gradient projection methods based on the Barzilai-Borwein spectral steplength choices are considered for quadratic programming problems with simple constraints. Well known nonmonotone spectral projected gradient methods and variable projection methods are discussed. For both approaches the behavior of different combinations of the two spectral steplengths is investigated. A nw adaptive stplength alternating rule is proposed, … Read more
