An obstacle of the situation in Eq. (4. fifty nine) is that it doesn't result in a precise line seek as σ → zero. another that removes this challenge is received via enhancing the in Eq. (4. fifty nine) as |g Tk+1d okay| ≤ −σg Tk d ok so that it will display that an actual line seek might be completed with the above situation, allow us to think that g T d d ok okay < zero. If g T k+1 okay < zero, the road seek won't terminate until eventually −|g Tk+1d ok| ≥ σg Tk d ok and if g T d k+1 ok > zero, the road seek won't terminate till |g Tk+1d ok| ≤ −σg Tk d ok (4. 60) Now if σg T d d d ok ok , g T k+1 okay , and −σg T ok okay are the derivatives of f (x ok + αd okay ) at issues α = α 1, α = α zero, and α = α 2, respectively, we've got α 1 ≤ α zero ≤ α 2 as depicted in Fig. four. 18. In influence, Eq. (4. 60) overrides either one of the Goldstein stipulations in Eqs. (4. fifty five) and (4. 56). in view that period [ α 1 , α 2] may be decreased up to wanted through lowering σ, it follows that α∗ may be made up our minds as properly as wanted, and as σ → zero, the road seek turns into particular. In this kind of case, the quantity of computation will be corresponding to that required by way of any different unique line seek and the computational good thing about utilizing an inexact line seek will be misplaced. An inexact line seek in accordance with Eqs. (4. fifty five) and (4. fifty nine) because of Fletcher [10] is as follows: set of rules four. 6 Inexact line seek Step 1 enter x okay, d ok, and compute g okay. Initialize set of rules parameters ρ, σ, τ , and χ. Set αL = zero and αU = 1099. Step 2 Compute fL = f (x ok + αLd k). Compute f = g(x L okay + αLd ok ) T d ok . Step three Estimate α zero. One-Dimensional Optimization 113 f (x ) okay f (x ) k+1 g T -| g T | | k+1 d okay | d k+1 ok σ g T T ok d okay σ - g kd ok α L α1 α0 α * α2 α determine four. 18. Conversion of inexact line seek into a precise line seek. Step four Compute f zero = f (x okay + α 0d k). Step five (Interpolation) If f zero > fL + ρ( α zero − αL) f , then do: L a. If α zero < αU , then set αU = α zero. b. Compute ˘ α zero utilizing Eq. (4. 57). c. If ˘ α zero < αL + τ ( αU − αL) then set ˘ α zero = αL + τ ( αU − αL). d. If ˘ α zero > αU − τ ( αU − αL) then set ˘ α zero = αU − τ ( αU − αL). e. Set α zero = ˘ α zero and visit Step four. Step 6 Compute f = g(x zero okay + α 0d okay ) T d ok . Step 7 (Extrapolation) If f < σf zero , then do: L a. Compute ∆ α zero = ( α zero − αL) f /( f − f ) zero (see Eq. (4. 58)). L zero b. If ∆ α zero < τ ( α zero − αL), then set ∆ α zero = τ ( α zero − αL). c. If ∆ α zero > χ( α zero − αL), then set ∆ α zero = χ( α zero − αL). d. Compute ˘ α zero = α zero + ∆ α zero. e. Set αL = α zero, α zero = ˘ α zero, fL = f zero, f = f L zero, and visit Step four. Step eight Output α zero and f zero = f (x okay + α 0d k), and forestall. The precision to which the minimizer is set is dependent upon the values of ρ and σ. Small values like ρ = σ = zero . 1 will yield a comparatively distinctive line seek while values like ρ = zero . three and σ = zero . nine will yield a a bit of obscure line seek. The values ρ = zero . 1 and σ = zero . 7 supply stable effects. 114 An estimate of α zero in Step three should be made up our minds by way of assuming that f (x) is a convex quadratic functionality and utilizing α 2 zero = g0 /(g T H zero 0g0) that's the minimal element for a convex quadratic functionality.
