Two-phase model algorithm with global convergence for nonlinear programming
Journal Of Optimization Theory And Applications. Plenum Publ Corp, v. 96, n. 2, n. 397, n. 436, 1998.
The family of feasible methods for minimization with nonlinear constraints includes the nonlinear projected gradient method, the generalized reduced gradient method (GRG), and many variants of the sequential gradient restoration algorithm (SGRA). Generally speaking, a particular iteration of any of these methods proceeds in two phases. In the restoration phase, feasibility is restored by means of the resolution of an auxiliary nonlinear problem, generally a nonlinear system of equations. In the minimization phase, optimality is improved by means of the consideration of the objective function, or its Lagrangian, on the tangent subspace to the constraints. In this paper, minimal assumptions are stated on the restoration phase and the minimization phase that ensure that the resulting algorithm is globally convergent. The key point is the possibility of comparing two successive nonfeasible iterates by means of a suitable merit function that combines feasibility and optimality. The merit function allows one to work with a high degree of infeasibility at the first iterations of the algorithm. Global convergence is proved and a particular implementation of the model algorithm is described.962397436
