Abstract:

Miele, Damoulakis and Cloutier developed the sequential gradient-restoration algorithm for minimizing a functional subject to differential constraints, nondifferential constraints, and terminal constraints. In the report, several numerical examples are presented, some pertaining to the fixed-final-time case and some pertaining to the free-final-time case. Both equality constrained optimization problems and problems with bounded control are investigated. The numerical results show the rapid convergence characteristics of the sequential gradient-restoration algorithm. Author
