This paper relates some numerical experiments with variable storage quasi-Newton methods for the optimization of large-scale models. The basic idea of the recommended algorithm is to start bfgs updates on a diagonal matrix, itself generated by an update formula and adjusted to Rayleigh's ellipsoid of the local Hessian of the objective function in the direction of the change in the gradient.

A variational derivation of some rank one and rank two updates in Hilbert spaces is also given.
