dc.description.abstractNonlinear right preconditioned globalization strategies for the solution of nonlinear programming problems of the following kind $u \in \mathcal B \subset \mathbb R^n: J(u) = \min!$ where $\mathcal B$ is a convex set of admissible solutions, $n\in \mathbb N$, and $J: \mathbb R^n \to \mathbb R$, sufficiently smooth, are presented.
Preconditioned globalization strategies are traditional Linesearch or Trust-Region strategies in combination with a nonlinear update operator which results from a nonlinear solution process for smaller, but related, nonlinear programming problems. We will formulate conditions on this abstract operator, in order to ensure global convergence, i.e., convergence to first-order critical points, of the resulting method.
In addition, we introduce particular implementations of this abstract operator, i.e., nonlinear multiplicatively preconditioned Trust-Region (MPTS) and Linesearch strategies (MPLS), as well as nonlinear additively preconditioned Trust-Region (APTS) and Linesearch (APLS) strategies. As it turns out, these additive strategies are novel parallel, locally adaptive and robust solution methods for nonlinear programming problems. Moreover, the MPTS strategy generalizes the RMTR concepts in [GK08] in order to allow also for the application of alternating nonlinear domain decomposition methods. On the other hand, the MPLS method simplifies and generalizes the concepts in [WG08] giving rise to a novel solution strategy for pointwise constrained nonlinear programming problems.
The respective nonlinear solution strategies are analyzed and global convergence is shown. In addition, global convergence is also shown for combined nonlinear additively and multiplicatively preconditioned Trust-Region and Linesearch strategies. Moreover, we show the efficiency and reliability of these methods in the context of problems arising from the field of nonlinear elasticity in 3d. Particular emphasis has been placed on the formulation and analysis of the resulting minimization problems. Here, we show that these problems satisfy the assumptions stated to show convergence of the respective preconditioned globalization strategies. Moreover, various elasto-static and elasto-dynamic examples are presented in order to compare the convergence rates and runtimes of the different strategies.
