Jorge Nocedal, Northwestern University Richard Waltz, Northwestern University | CG+ is a Conjugate Gradient code for solving large-scale, unconstrained, nonlinear optimization problems.
CG+ implements three different versions of the Conjugate Gradient method: the Fletcher-Reeves method, the Polak-Ribiere method, and the positive Polak-Ribiere method (Beta always non-negative). |
