Numerical optimization

The interest is focused on the construction of numerical methods for the solution of several classes of optimization problems, such as for example systems of (possibly constrained) nonlinear equations, nonlinear programming problems such as quadratic programming problems and semi-definite programming problems. Special care is devoted to the treatment of problems with very large dimension. The research activity aims at building robust and efficient numerical methods, and this target is typically pursued using  globally convergent variants of Netwon method.
