Abstract : Consider the sequence obtained by applying the gradient projection method to the problem of minimizing a continuously differentiable functional over a closed convex subset of a real Hilbert space. In this paper it is shown that if the subset is a regular subset, which includes polyhedral subsets, or the positive cone of an orthogonal set, then any cluster point of this sequence must be a constrained stationary point. These results generalize a wellknown theorem, due to Curry, for unconstrained minimization in Euclidean space. (Author)
