This paper presents a minimization method based on the idea of partitioned updating of the Hessian matrix in the case where the objective function can be decomposed in a sum of convex “element” functions. This situation occurs in a large class of practical problems including nonlinear finite elements calculations. Some theoretical and algorithmic properties of the update are discussed and encouraging numerical results are presented.
