Algorithm 851: CG_DESCENT. A conjugate gradient method with guaranteed descent Recently, a new nonlinear conjugate gradient scheme was developed which satisfies the descent condition gTkdk ≤ −7/8 ‖gk‖2 and which is globally convergent whenever the line search fulfills the Wolfe conditions. This article studies the convergence behavior of the algorithm; extensive numerical tests and comparisons with other methods for large-scale unconstrained optimization are given.

This software is also peer reviewed by journal TOMS.
