This up-to-date book is on algorithms for large-scale unconstrained and bound constrained optimization. Optimization techniques are shown from a conjugate gradient algorithm perspective. Large part of the book is devoted to preconditioned conjugate gradient algorithms. In particular memoryless and. Nonlinear Conjugate Gradient Method. Back to Unconstrained Optimization. Nonlinear conjugate gradient methods make up another popular class of algorithms for large-scale optimization. These algorithms can be derived as extensions of the conjugate gradient algorithm or as specializations of limited-memory quasi-Newton methods.

Nonlinear Conjugate Gradient Extensions of the linear CG method to nonquadratic problems have been developed and extensively researched. In the common variants, the basic idea is to avoid matrix operations altogether and simply express the search directions recursively as for, with. The new iterates for the minimum point can then be set to. The nonlinear conjugate gradient method is a very useful technique for solving large scale minimization problems and has wide applications in many ﬁelds. In this paper, we present a new algorithm of nonlinear conjugate gradient method with strong convergence for unconstrained minimization Size: KB.

A conjugate-gradient optimization method which is invariant to nonlinear scaling of a quadratic form is introduced. The technique has the property that the search directions generated are identical to those produced by the classical Fletcher-Reeves algorithm applied to the quadratic form.

$\begingroup$ Well, BFGS is certainly more costly in terms of storage than CG. One requires the maintenance of an approximate Hessian, while the other only needs a few vectors from you. On the other hand, both require the computation of a gradient, but I am told that with BFGS, you can get away with using finite difference approximations instead of having to write a routine for the gradient.

A general criterion for the global convergence of the nonlinear conjugate gradient method is established, based on which the global convergence of a new modified three-parameter nonlinear conjugate gradient method is proved under some mild conditions.

Gradient descent is the method that iteratively searches for a minimizer by looking in the gradient direction.
