A Nonmonotone Line Search Method for Symmetric Nonlinear Equations
ABSTRACT
In this paper, we propose a new method which based on the nonmonotone line search technique for solving symmetric nonlinear equations. The method can ensure that the search direction is descent for the norm function. Under suitable conditions, the global convergence of the method is proved. Numerical results show that the presented method is practicable for the test problems.
