A diagonal quasi-Newton updating method for unconstrained optimization. (English) Zbl 1416.49025
Summary: A diagonal quasi-Newton updating algorithm is presented. The elements of the diagonal matrix approximating the Hessian are determined by minimizing both the size of the change from the previous estimate and the trace of the update, subject to the weak secant equation. Under mild classical assumptions, the convergence of the algorithm is proved to be linear. The diagonal quasi-Newton update satisfies the bounded deterioration property. Numerical experiments with 80 unconstrained optimization test problems of different structures and complexities prove that the suggested algorithm is more efficient and more robust than the steepest descent, Cauchy with Oren and Luenberger scaling algorithm in its complementary form and classical Broyden-Fletcher-Goldfarb-Shanno algorithm.
