Global convergence properties of conjugate gradient methods for optimization. (English) Zbl 0767.90082
This paper studies the convergence properties of nonlinear conjugate gradient methods without restarts, and with practical line searches for the problem $min\sb{x\in\bbfR\sp n}f(x)$. Iterations of the search directions and new points under study are chosen as: $$x\sb{k+1}=x\sb k+\alpha\sb kd\sb k,\text{ where } d\sb k=\cases -g\sb k, & \text{ for } k=1,\\ -g\sb k+\beta\sb kd\sb{k-1} & \text{ for } k\ge 2, \endcases$$ Various choices of $\beta\sb k$ and inexact line searches that result in global convergence are considered. The analysis is closely related to the methods of Fletcher-Reeves and Polak-Ribière. Numerical experiments are presented.
