A theoretical and numerical comparison of some semismooth algorithms for complementarity problems. (English) Zbl 0964.90046
Summary: We introduce a general line search scheme which easily allows us to define and analyze known and new semismooth algorithms for the solution of nonlinear complementarity problems. We enucleate the basic assumptions that a search direction to be used in the general scheme has to enjoy in order to guarantee global convergence, local superlinear/quadratic convergence or finite convergence. We examine in detail several different semismooth algorithms and compare their theoretical features and their practical behavior on a set of large-scale problems.
