Krylov-secant methods for solving large-scale systems of coupled nonlinear parabolic equations
This dissertation centers on two major aspects dictating the computational time of applications based on the solution of systems of coupled nonlinear parabolic equations: nonlinear and linear iterations. The former aspect ...
A modified augmented Lagrangian merit function, and Q-superlinear characterization results for primal-dual Quasi-Newton interior-point method for nonlinear programming
Two classes of primal-dual interior-point methods for nonlinear programming are studied. The first class corresponds to a path-following Newton method formulated in terms of the nonnegative variables rather than all primal ...
Three approaches to building curves and surfaces in computer-aided geometric design
Modeling free-form curves and surfaces is one of the fundamental problems in computer aided geometric design. To solve this problem, several modeling techniques have been proposed. Three of these techniques, are investigated. ...
