About 60 scientists and scholars attended the ninety six' overseas convention on Nonlinear Programming, which was once held September 2-5 at Institute of Compu­ tational arithmetic and Scientific/Engineering Computing (ICMSEC), Chi­ nese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China. 25 contributors have been from outdoor China and 35 from China. The convention used to be to rejoice the 60's birthday of Professor M.J.D. Powell (Fellow of Royal Society, collage of Cambridge) for his many contributions to nonlinear optimization. On behalf of the chinese language Academy of Sciences, vice chairman Professor Zhi­ hong Xu attended the hole rite of the convention to precise his hot welcome to all of the individuals. After the hole rite, Professor M.J.D. Powell gave the keynote lecture "The use of band matrices for moment spinoff approximations in belief area methods". thirteen different invited lectures on contemporary advances of nonlinear programming got in the course of the 4 day assembly: "Primal-dual equipment for nonconvex optimization" through M. H. Wright (SIAM President, Bell Labs), "Interior element trajectories in semidefinite programming" by means of D. Goldfarb (Columbia college, Editor-in-Chief for sequence A of Mathe­ matical Programming), "An method of by-product loose optimization" through A.

1), parameterized by Il, is minimized subject to the equality constraints c(x) = 0: minimize{3(x,ll) subject to c(x) = o. 3) Note that the equality constraints of the original problem are carried over directly (without transformation) to the subproblem. 4). 3). For proofs and additional details, see [9] and [23]. 7) indicates that p,/dj(x/l) serves as a Lagrange multiplier estimate for the jth inequality constraint. 8) so that its jth component satisfies (z/l)j = ~. 8) may equivalently be written as D(x/l)zJL = p,e, or (zJL)J dj(xJL) = p,.

Since AT = 0, multiplication by LlX2 in terms of LlXl: Qr gives a linear system that expresses -Qfh - QfKQlLlXl -Qfg + f-LQfBTD-le - QfKQ1 LlX1. 7) uniquely determines LlX2. 12) uniquely determines LlZ: DLlZ = f-Le - Dz - ZBLlX, or Llz = -z + D-1(f-Le - ZBLlX). 8) It is shown in [26] that, even though elements of D corresponding to active constraints are tiny and possibly subject to large relative errors because of cancellation, Llz can be calculated to essentially full precision. 1) is distinguished from a non-minimizing stationary point by nonnegativity of the eigenvalues of N}W NJ , the Hessian of the Lagrangian projected into the null space of the Jacobian of all binding constraints; see Condition 5 of Section 1.

Choosing the steplength We follow most primal-dual methods [28] in allowing separate steplengths in x and z. All iterates must satisfy d(x) > 0 and z > 0, and so a first requirement 46 ADVANCES IN NONLINEAR PROGRAMMING for the line search is to maintain strict feasibility. With linear constraints, it is possible to calculate exactly the steplength from the current point to the boundary of the feasible region. For nonlinear constraints, an estimate of this steplength can be obtained using a standard linearization.
