Citation for non-linear optimizor "dtrnlspbc_solve"

Jump to solution

Hello,

I'm using dtrnlspbc_solve to optimize some ecological model parameters. I checked the manual (Intel(R) Math Kernel Library Reference Manual) and it mentions that this solver uses the trust-region algorithm. Is there a paper or a book that I can cite when I describe this solver? Thanks.

MKL's TR Solver implementation is based on our internal modification of algorithms described in Andrew R. Conn, Nicholas I. Gould, Philippe L. Toint, Trust Region Methods, SIAM, 2000

I do not know the pedigree of the MKL trust region solver, but one of the earlier papers on trust region methods is no. 15 in the list at http://www.cs.sandia.gov/~dmgay/dmgbib.html . The associated TOMS software is http://netlib.org/toms/611.gz (early 1980-s)

mecej4, Thank you for your reply. I found the reference in your link:

15 D. M. Gay, On Convergence Testing in Model Trust Region Algorithms for Unconstrained Optimization, 104, AT&T Bell Laboratories, 1982, (104) , Comp. Sci. Tech. Rep. No..

It seems like a technical report and I cannot find its copy online (WebOfKnowledge, google). Are you sure the method in this reference or its variant is used in dtrnlspbc_solve? Thanks.

As I said, I don't know the original publications relevant to the DTRNLSP code; perhaps someone from Intel will respond on this point. Likewise, I have no reason to believe that Gay's paper/report has any relation to DTRNLSP.
