An adaptive regularization algorithm is proposed that uses Taylor models of the objective of order p, (Formula presented.), of the unconstrained objective function, and that is guaranteed to find a first- and second-order critical point in at most (Formula presented.) function and derivatives evaluations, where ε 1 and ε 1 are prescribed first- and second-order optimality tolerances. This is a simple algorithm and associated analysis compared to the much more general approach in Cartis et al. [Sharp worst-case evaluation complexity bounds for arbitrary-order nonconvex optimization with inexpensive constraints, arXiv:1811.01220, 2018] that addresses the complexity of criticality higher-than two; here, we use standard optimality conditions and practical subproblem solves to show a same-order sharp complexity bound for second-order criticality. Our approach also extends the method in Birgin et al. [Worst-case evaluation complexity for unconstrained nonlinear optimization using high-order regularized models, Math. Prog. A 163(1) (2017), pp. 359–368] to finding second-order critical points, under the same problem smoothness assumptions as were needed for first-order complexity.
