Improving the Flexibility and Robustness of Model-based Derivative-free Optimization Solvers
We present two software packages for derivative-free optimization (DFO): DFO-LS for nonlinear least-squares problems and Py-BOBYQA for general objectives, both with optional bound constraints. Expand

Some inverse problems around the tokamak Tore Supra
We consider two inverse problems related to the tokamak \textsl{Tore Supra} through the study of the magnetostatic equation for the poloidal flux. The first one deals with the Cauchy issue ofExpand

A Derivative Free Optimization Method Adapted to Partially Separable Functions for History Matching Problems
History matching is a challenging optimization problem that involves numerous evaluations of a very expensive objective function through the simulation of complex fluids flows inside an oilExpand
A Generalized Local Gradual Deformation Method for History Matching
Geostatistical methods are commonly used to characterize oil field heterogeneities in order to establish a predictive reservoir model. To reduce the model uncertainties, dynamic information, such asExpand
