In this paper, an unconstrained minimization algorithm is defined in which a nonmonotone line search technique is employed in association with a truncated Newton algorithm. Numerical results obtained for a set of standard test problems are reported which indicate that the proposed algorithm is highly effective in the solution of ill-conditioned as well as(More)
In this paper we study a class of derivative-free unconstrained minimization algorithms employing nonmonotone inexact linesearch techniques along a set of suitable search directions. In particular, we define globally convergent nonmonotone versions of some well-known derivative-free methods and we propose a new algorithm combining coordinate rotations with(More)
