Abstract:

This paper continues studies concerning iterative methods of driving the gradient to zero A. A. Goldstein. Minimizing functionals on Hilbert space. Computer methods in optimization problems. New York, Academic Press, 1964, p. 159-165. Those studies were concerned with functions which were twice differentiable in this paper only first derivatives will be assumed. Other results included are a fixed point theorem for gradient operators and a simple proof of the classical method of steepest descent.
