Newton's Method For Large Bound-Constrained Optimization Problems

Jorge J. Moré
We analyze a trust region version of Newton's method for bound-constrained problems. Our approach relies on the geometry of the feasible set, not on the particular representation in terms of constraints. The convergence theory holds for linearly-constrained problems, and yields global and superlinear convergence without assuming neither strict complementarity nor linear independence of the active constraints. We also show that the convergence theory leads to an efficient implementation for large bound-constrained problems.
