Xuebin Wang, Changfeng Ma, Meiyan Li. A SMOOTHING TRUST REGION METHOD FOR NCPS BASED ON THE SMOOTHING GENERALIZED FISCHER-BURMEISTER FUNCTION[J]. Journal of Computational Mathematics, 2011, 29(3): 261-286.

Based on a reformulation of the complementarity problem as a system of nonsmooth equations by using the generalized Fischer-Burmeister function, a smoothing trust region algorithm with line search is proposed for solving general (not necessarily monotone) nonlinear complementarity problems. Global convergence and, under a nonsingularity assumption, local Q-superlinear/Q-quadratic convergence of the algorithm are established. In particular, it is proved that a unit step size is always accepted after a finite number of iterations. Numerical results also confirm the good theoretical properties of our approach.
