# TAOLMVM

Limited Memory Variable Metric method is a quasi-Newton optimization solver for unconstrained minimization. It solves the Newton step Hkdk = - gk using an approximation Bk in place of Hk, where Bk is composed using
the BFGS update formula. A More-Thuente line search is then used
to computed the steplength in the dk direction

### Options Database Keys
