Abstract:

We consider the minimization of a function which is the maximum of a finite number of smooth but nonlinear functions. It is well-known that the minimax problem of this type connects naturally to a nonlinear program. Through this connection the effective quasi-Newton method becomes applicable. We show that this approach is valid and the resulting method has global convergence properties. Author
