Do no generic termination criteria exist for steepest descent?

Where here we wonder why there are no generic termination criteria for the gradient method which guarantee a desired sub-optimality when f is strictly (not strongly) convex and has L-Lipschitz gradient. Does it make sense to terminate when \|\nabla f(x_k)\| is small? And when should we terminate? Continue reading →
