This paper gives a modified Hestenes and Stiefel (HS) conjugate gradient algorithm under the Yuan-Wei-Lu inexact line search technique for large-scale unconstrained optimization problems, where the proposed algorithm has the following properties: the new search direction possesses not only a sufficient descent property but also a trust region feature; the presented algorithm has global convergence for nonconvex functions; the numerical experiment showed that the new algorithm is more effective than similar algorithms.
