Title On the evaluation complexity of cubic regularization methods for potentially rank-deficient nonlinear least-squares problems and its relevance to constrained nonlinear optimization
Abstract We propose a new termination criteria suitable for potentially singular, zero or non-zero residual, least-squares problems, with which cubic regularization variants take at most O(epsilon−3/2) residual- and Jacobian-evaluations to drive either the residual or a scaled gradient of the least-squares function below epsilon; this is the best-known bound for potentially singular nonlinear least-squares problems. We then apply the new optimality measure and cubic regularization steps to a family of least-squares merit functions in the context of a target-following algorithm for nonlinear equality-constrained problems; this approach yields the first evaluation complexity bound of order epsilon−3/2 for nonconvexly constrained problems when higher accuracy is required for primal feasibility than for dual first-order criticality.
