Application of the Infinitely Many Times Repeated BNS Update and Conjugate Directions to Limited-Memory Optimization Methods
Vlček, Jan ; Lukšan, Ladislav
To improve the performance of the L-BFGS method for large scale unconstrained optimization, repeating of some BFGS updates was proposed. Since this can be time consuming, the extra updates need to be selected carefully. We show that groups of these updates can be repeated infinitely many times under some conditions, without a noticeable increase of the computational time. The limit update is a block BFGS update. It can be obtained by solving of some Lyapunov matrix equation whose order can be decreased by application of vector corrections for conjugacy. Global convergence of the proposed algorithm is established for convex and sufficiently smooth functions. Numerical results indicate the efficiency of the new method.
A Generalized Limited-Memory BNS Method Based on the Block BFGS Update
Vlček, Jan ; Lukšan, Ladislav
A block version of the BFGS variable metric update formula is investigated. It satisfies the quasi-Newton conditions with all used difference vectors and gives the best improvement of convergence in some sense for quadratic objective functions, but it does not guarantee that the direction vectors are descent for general functions. To overcome this difficulty and utilize the advantageous properties of the block BFGS update, a block version of the limited-memory BNS method for large scale unconstrained optimization is proposed. The algorithm is globally convergent for convex sufficiently smooth functions and our numerical experiments indicate its efficiency.
