"A Revisit of Gradient Descent Method for Nonlinear Optimization" by Hongchao Zhang

In this talk, we will discuss some recent advances of the gradient methods developed in nonlinear optimization, including steepest descent methods, Barizilai-Borwein type methods, optimal gradient methods, quasi-Newton methods and conjugate gradient methods. Our focus will be the convergence properties of these methods as well as their practical performances.
