Abstract: In this work, we look into new derivative-free methods to solve equality-constrained optimization problems. Of particular interest, are the trust-region techniques, which have been investigated for the unconstrained and bound-constrained cases. For solving equality-constrained optimization problems, we introduce a derivative-free adaptation of the trust-funnel method combined with a self-correcting geometry scheme and present some encouraging initial numerical results.
