6. A Barzilai Borwein Adaptive Trust-Region Method for Solving Systems of Nonlinear Equation

F. Rahpeymaii; M. Kimiaei

Volume 6, Issue 4 , Autumn 2017, Pages 339-349


  In this paper, we introduce a new adaptive trust-region approach to solve systems of nonlinear equations. In order to improve the efficiency of adaptive radius strategy proposed by Esmaeili and Kimiaei [8], Barzilai Borwein technique (BB) [3] with low memory is used which can truly control the trust-region ...  Read More
