The Lagrangian globalization (LG) method for non-linear equation-solving proposed in [10] is developed through theoretical analysis, the formulation of a particular LG algorithm, and a numerical illustration. New merit functions (termed detour potentials) for non-linear equation-solving, which broaden the LG concept, are also defined.
