Abstract

"A general technique is developed to restart nonderivative algorithms in unconstrained optimization. Application of the technique is shown to result in mixed algorithms which are considerably more robust than their component procedures. A general mixed algorithm is developed and its convergence is demonstrated. A uniform computational comparison is given for the new mixed algorithms and for a collection of procedures from the literature"--Abstract, page ii.
