Default Compiler Generated Methods

(Hidden to avoid implicit creation/calling).

These methods are not implemented and we do not want the compiler to implement them for us, so we declare them private and do not define them. This ensures that they will not be implicitly created/called.

Member Function Documentation

virtual void Ipopt::LineSearch::FindAcceptableTrialPoint ( )
pure virtual

Perform the line search.

As search direction the delta in the data object is used

Implemented in Ipopt::BacktrackingLineSearch.

virtual void Ipopt::LineSearch::Reset ( )
pure virtual

Reset the line search.

This function should be called if all previous information should be discarded when the line search is performed the next time. For example, this method should be called after the barrier parameter is changed.

Implemented in Ipopt::BacktrackingLineSearch.

virtual void Ipopt::LineSearch::SetRigorousLineSearch ( bool  rigorous)
pure virtual

Set flag indicating whether a very rigorous line search should be performed.

If this flag is set to true, the line search algorithm might decide to abort the line search and not to accept a new iterate. If the line search decided not to accept a new iterate, the return value of CheckSkippedLineSearch() is true at the next call. For example, in the non-monotone barrier parameter update procedure, the filter algorithm should not switch to the restoration phase in the free mode; instead, the algorithm should swtich to the fixed mode.

Implemented in Ipopt::BacktrackingLineSearch.

virtual bool Ipopt::LineSearch::CheckSkippedLineSearch ( )
pure virtual

Check if the line search procedure didn't accept a new iterate during the last call of FindAcceptableTrialPoint().

Implemented in Ipopt::BacktrackingLineSearch.

virtual bool Ipopt::LineSearch::ActivateFallbackMechanism ( )
pure virtual

This method should be called if the optimization process requires the line search object to switch to some fallback mechanism (like the restoration phase), when the regular optimization procedure cannot be continued (for example, because the search direction could not be computed).

This will cause the line search object to immediately proceed with this mechanism when FindAcceptableTrialPoint() is call. This method returns false if no fallback mechanism is available.

Implemented in Ipopt::BacktrackingLineSearch.

void Ipopt::LineSearch::operator= ( const LineSearch )
private

Overloaded Equals Operator.
