Accelerating the modified Levenberg-Marquardt method


In this talk, we will present an accelerated version of the modified LM method for nonlinear equations, which not only computes a LM step but also an approximate LM step with line search at every iteration. Under the local error bound condition which is weaker than nonsingularity,
we show the convergence order of the accelerated modified LM method is a continuous function with respect to the LM parameter. We compare the new method with both the LM method and the modified LM method and observe significantly competitive performance.

Optimizing inversion methods for seismic imaging


In this talk we address several migration and optimizing inversion methods in seismic imaging. In particular, regularizing least squares migration and inversion imaging techniques are discussed. Preconditioning technique is also introduced. Numerical tests are made to show the performance of the methods. Since the interferometric migration and the least squares migration both aim to improve the resolution of seismic imaging, a numerical experiment is also made to discuss their ability in improving imaging resolution.

Limited memory updating and quadratic overestimation for NLOP

Coauthors: Levis Eneya, Andreas Griewank


We pursue the approach of solving non-linearly constraint problems using an active set strategy without the complete evaluation of Jacobians or Hessians. The linearized KKT systems are solved approximately on the basis of limited derivative information and compact storage schemes.
The resulting step corresponds to a projected Hessian who's positive definiteness is ensured with the help of quadratic overestimation.
We will present theoretical arguments and numerical experiments.
