New Three-Term Conjugate Gradient Method with Exact Line Search
AbstractConjugate Gradient (CG) methods have an important role in solving large
scale unconstrained optimization problems. Nowadays, the Three-Term CG method has
become a research trend of the CG methods. However, the existing Three-Term CG
methods could only be used with the inexact line search. When the exact line search
is applied, this Three-Term CG method will be reduced to the standard CG method.
Hence in this paper, a new Three-Term CG method that could be used with the exact
line search is proposed. This new Three-Term CG method satisfies the descent condition
using the exact line search. Performance profile based on numerical results show that
this proposed method outperforms the well-known classical CG method and some related
hybrid methods. In addition, the proposed method is also robust in term of number of
iterations and CPU time.
