A New Variants of Quasi-Newton Equation Based on the Quadratic Function for Unconstrained Optimization

Basim Abbas Hassan, Mohammed Taha


Using quadratic function, for deriving a new quasi-Newton equation. Then, based on this new quasi-Newton equation, a new quasi-Newton updating formulas are presented. Under appropriate conditions, it is shown that the proposed method is globally convergent. Finally, some numerical experiments which verifies the effectiveness of the new method.
