Abstract:

The paper considers a system described by p algebraic or transcendental equations involving n variables, with np. It is assumed that a nominal state, not satisfying all the equations, is given. An iterative procedure is developed leading to a varied state satisfying all the equations. The procedure involves quasilinearization with an added optimality condition, namely, the requirement of least-square change of the coordinates. Several numerical examples are supplied. Author
