This updated e-book is on algorithms for large-scale unconstrained and certain limited optimization. Optimization ideas are proven from a conjugate gradient set of rules standpoint.

Large a part of the e-book is dedicated to preconditioned conjugate gradient algorithms. specifically memoryless and restricted reminiscence quasi-Newton algorithms are offered and numerically in comparison to regular conjugate gradient algorithms.

The distinct recognition is paid to the equipment of shortest residuals constructed by means of the writer. a number of powerful optimization recommendations in accordance with those tools are offered.

Because of the emphasis on functional tools, in addition to rigorous mathematical remedy in their convergence research, the ebook is aimed toward a large viewers. it may be utilized by researches in optimization, graduate scholars in operations learn, engineering, arithmetic and desktop technological know-how. Practitioners can reap the benefits of a variety of numerical comparisons optimization codes mentioned within the e-book.

36) directly. Since the directions p1 , . . 43) and because pi = −ri + βi pi−1 , we have ri ∈ span {pi , pi−1 } . 36). The theorem shows that gradients evaluated by the conjugate gradient algorithm are mutually orthogonal. Therefore, the question arises why the method was called the conjugate gradient algorithm? One explanation is that the method starts with p1 = −g1 . In addition Hestenes [100] proves that directions generated by the conjugate gradient method are directions of steepest descent in the subspaces Pˆ n−k = x ∈ R n : pTj A (x − xk+1) , j = 1, .

77) resulting from the condition rk+1 k xk+1 − x¯ 2 A = (xk+1 − x) ¯ T A (xk+1 − x) ¯ ¯ = (Axk+1 − b)T (xk+1 − x) T (xk − αk rk − x) ¯ = rk+1 T (xk − x) ¯ = rk+1 = (rk − αk Ark )T (xk − x) ¯ = rkT A−1 rk − αk rkT rk = xk − x¯ 2 A 1− rkT rk rkT rk rkT Ark rkT A−1 rk since xk − x¯ 2 A = rkT A−1 AA−1 rk = rkT A−1 rk . Applying the Kantorovitch inequality gives the thesis. 67): xk+1 − x¯ 2 A min max (1 + λiPk (λi ))2 x1 − x¯ Pk 1 i n 2 A which can be rephrased as xk+1 − x¯ 2 A min max [Qk (λ )]2 x1 − x¯ 2A .

6 Rate of Convergence 37 Proof. The proof is given in [31]. 78) can be stated in a different form, more convenient for further analysis. 4. 79) with η= λmin . λmax − λmin Proof. 15 based on [189]) In order to obtain the thesis we use the inequality Ck (t) = k 1 t + t2 − 1 + t + 2 k 1 t + t2 − 1 2 t2 − 1 −k which gives Ck (1 + 2η ) 1 1 + 2η + (1 + 2η )2 − 1 2 k 1 1 + 2η + 2 η (η + 1) . 2 Furthermore, 2 √ η + η +1 √ √ 2 λmin + λmax = λ +λ √ min √ max λmin + λmax √ = √ λ − λmin √ max κ +1 , = √ κ −1 1 + 2η + 2 η (η + 1) = where κ is the spectral condition number: κ= λmax .
