On the global convergence of a filter-SQP algorithm. (English) Zbl 1029.65063

A mechanism for proving global convergence in sequential quadratic programming (SQP) filter methods for nonlinear programs is described. The proposed algorithm contains a convergent inner iteration for calculating a suitable trust region radius.
