Global Convergence of a Modified Tri-Dimensional Filter Method
Abstract: In this paper, a tri-dimensional filter method for nonlinear programming was proposed. We add a parameter into the traditional filter for relaxing the criterion of iterates. The global convergent properties of the proposed algorithm are proved under some appropriate conditions.
