Special Issue on Iterative Algorithms for Solving Unconstrained Optimization Problems and System Nonlinear Equations with Applications

Aims and Scope

The aim of the Research Topic is to bring together the latest quality articles from researchers working in the area of Optimization, which include to study and present the latest concepts, ideas, and results on these topics that are not limited to derivatives and derivative-free algorithms, algorithms with or without memory, multi-step algorithms and their convergence analysis which may be global, local, semi-local or quadratic.

Unconstrained optimization and Systems of nonlinear equation are of great importance due to their appearance in various areas of applied sciences and engineering which include but not limited to power flow, ballistic trajectory computation and vibration systems, the sub-problem in the generalized proximal algorithms with Bregman, motion control of two-joint planar robotic manipulator, and signal processing problems. Solving these types of problems is a non-trivial task involving many fields of Science and Technology. Typically, obtaining the solutions of these problems is not affordable when using the direct approach, thus, iterative algorithms are usually employed. In recent years, this area of research has continued to experience a rapid growth because of its tremendous applications.
