Title: Quasi-Newton Methods, Motivation and Theory
Authors: Dennis, John E., Jr.
More, Jorge J.
Keywords: computer science
technical report
Issue Date: Nov-1974
Publisher: Cornell University
Abstract: This paper is an attempt to motivate and justify quasi-Newton methods as useful modifications of Newton's method for general and gradient nonlinear systems of equations. References are given to ample numerical justification; here we give an overview of many of the important theoretical results and each is accompanied by sufficient discussion to make the results and hence the methods plausible. Key Words and Phrases: unconstrained minimization, nonlinear simultaneous equations, update methods, quasi-Newton methods.
