### A second derivative SQP method: Local convergence

Abstract:

In NA 08/18, we gave global convergence results for a second-derivative SQP method for minimizing the exact l1-merit function for a fixed value of the penalty parameter. To establish this result, we used the properties of the so-called Cauchy step, which was itself computed from the so-called predictor step. In addition, we allowed for the computation of a variety of (optional) SQP steps that were intended to improve the efficiency of the algorithm. Although we established global convergence ...
