Inheritance diagram for F_PR_CgNonLS:
Purpose: Nonlinear Polack-Ribiere Conjugate Gradient It's use ensure: - descent directions, - global convergence is not always ensured. (problem with Zoutendijk conditions) - supports only strong wolf conditions - FR stagnation is avoided :-) - Still suffer from important STICKING, (sleepering from obliged restarts) :-( Polack-Ribiere are not perfect but very popular, Today. Newer Dai-Yuan NCGs are more general and have much better properties. Papers: "An Introduction to the Conjugate Gradient Method Without the Agonizing Pain", J. R.
