A New Nonlinear Conjugate Gradient Method Based on the Scaled Matrix

Basim A. Hassan, Haneen A. Alashoor


In this paper, a new type nonlinear conjugate gradient method based on the Scale
Matrix is derived. The new method has the decent and globally convergent
properties under some assumptions. Numerical results indicate the efficiency of
this method to solve the given test problems.
