Title Mesh Adaptive Direct Search Methods for Constrained Nonsmooth Optimization.
Publication Date Feb 2012
Media Count 6p
Personal Author C. Audet
Abstract The goal of our project remains: The design, analysis, and implementation of optimization tools to aid in making and documenting decisions involving trading off multiple objectives for mixed variable, generally constrained problems with no global smoothness assumptions. More and more researchers are getting interested in the field of blackbox optimization. 2011 marked the beginning of new research projects and collaborations.
