On the convergence properties of second-order multiplier methods

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

6 Scopus citations


The purpose of this note is to provide some estimates relating to Newton-type methods of multipliers. These estimates can be used to infer that convergence in such methods can be achieved for an arbitrary choice of the initial multiplier vector by selecting the penalty parameter sufficiently large.
