Spectral gradient projection method for solving nonlinear monotone equations. (English) Zbl 1128.65034

The authors report an algorithm for solving nonlinear monotone equations. The method is a combination of a modified spectral gradient method and a projection method. They prove global convergence of the algorithm provided the nonlinear equation is monotone and Lipschitz continuous, and extend the applicability of the algorithm to non-smooth equations. Preliminary numerical results illustrate the efficiency of the proposed algorithm.
