tnbc | R Documentation |

A bounds-constarined R implementation of a truncated Newton method for minimization of nonlinear functions subject to bounds (box) constraints.

tnbc(x, fgfun, lower, upper, trace=0, ...)

`x` |
A numeric vector of starting estimates. |

`fgfun` |
A function that returns the value of the objective at
the supplied set of parameters |

`lower` |
A vector of lower bounds on the parameters. |

`upper` |
A vector of upper bounds on the parameters. |

`trace` |
Set >0 to cause intermediate output to allow progress to be followed. |

`...` |
Further arguments to be passed to |

Function `fgfun`

must return a numeric value in list item `f`

and a numeric vector in list item `g`

.

A list with components:

`xstar` |
The best set of parameters found. |

`f` |
The value of the objective at the best set of parameters found. |

`g` |
The gradient of the objective at the best set of parameters found. |

`ierror` |
An integer indicating the situation on termination. |

`nfngr` |
A number giving a measure of how many conjugate gradient solutions were used during the minimization process. |
