A nonmonotone line search filter method with reduced Hessian updating for nonlinear optimization. (English) Zbl 1292.90279
Summary: This paper proposes a nonmonotone line search filter method with reduced Hessian updating for solving nonlinear equality constrained optimization. In order to deal with large scale problems, a reduced Hessian matrix is approximated by BFGS updates. The new method assures global convergence without using a merit function. By Lagrangian function in the filter and nonmonotone scheme, the authors prove that the method can overcome Maratos effect without using second order correction step so that the locally superlinear convergence is achieved. The primary numerical experiments are reported to show effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
