Nonlinear Stepsize Control, Trust Regions and Regularizations for Unconstrained Optimization

A general class of algorithms for unconstrained optimization is introduced, which subsumes the classical trust-region algorithm and two of its newer variants, as well as the cubic and quadratic regularization methods. A unified theory of global convergence to first-order critical points is then described for this class. An extension to projection-based trust-region algorithms for nonlinear … Read more
