Detailed Description

Nonlinear solver based on a line search (i.e., damping).

Solves $F(x)=0$ using an iterative line-search-based method.

Each iteration, the solver does the following.

The iterations progress until the status tests (see NOX::StatusTest) determine either failure or convergence.

To support several line searches and status tests, this version of the solver has a getStepSize() function that returns $\lambda$.
Input Parameters

The following parameter list entries are valid for this solver:

Output Parameters

Every time solve() is called, a sublist for output parameters called "Output" will be created and contain the following parameters.

Member Function Documentation

NOX::StatusTest::StatusType NOX::Solver::LineSearchBased::solve (  )  [virtual]

Solve the nonlinear problem and return final status.

By "solve", we call iterate() until the NOX::StatusTest value is either NOX::StatusTest::Converged or NOX::StatusTest::Failed.

Implements NOX::Solver::Generic.
