A modified Nelder-Mead barrier method for constrained optimization

Mathematics and Statistics, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand

Received  October 2020 Revised  November 2020 Published  December 2020

An interior point modified Nelder Mead method for nonlinearly constrained optimization is described. This method neither uses nor estimates objective function or constraint gradients. A modified logarithmic barrier function is used. The method generates a sequence of points which converges to KKT point(s) under mild conditions including existence of a Slater point. Numerical results are presented that show the algorithm performs well in practice.

Figure 1.  The current polytope $ x_0 $, $ x_1 $, and $ x_2 $ is shown in solid lines. The modified Nelder Mead sub-algorithm first tries to replace the worst polytope point $ x_2 $ with one of $ x_{ic} $, $ x_{oc} $, $ x_r $ or $ x_e $. These four points lie on the dashed line through $ x_2 $ and the centroid $ \bar{x} $ of the remaining polytope points. If this fails to give sufficient descent, the fictitious polytope $ y_1 $, $ y_2 $, $ H $ is used, where the fictitious polytope's worst point $ H $ is reflected through the centroid $ \bar{y} $ of that polytope's remaining points, giving a fictitous new low point $ x_0 $. The expand step is then tried from this fictitious polytope, giving the pseudo-expand point $ x_{pe} $. The points $ y_1,\ldots,y_n $ ($ y_1 $ and $ y_2 $ here) and $ x_{pe} $ form a frame around $ x_0 $
