Abstract: In this paper, a general fractional model is proposed. Based on the fractional model, a quasi-Newton trust region algorithm is presented for unconstrained optimization. The trust region subproblem is solved in the simplified way. We discussed the choices of the parameters in the fractional model and prove the global convergence of the proposed algorithm. Some primary test results shows the feasibility and validity of the fractional model.
Keywords: Unconstrained optimization, fractional model, trust region method, quasi-Newton method, global convergence.
