Abstract.In this paper, a variant of feasible descent SQP method is proposed to solve the nonlinear programming. In our algorithm, a feasible descent direction is obtained by solving only one modified QP subproblem. In order to avoid Maratos effect, a height-order correction direction is computed by an explicit formula. Under mild conditions without strict complementarity, the global and local superlinear convergence properties are obtained.
