We present a novel search algorithm which is suitable for optimizing functions with a high-dimensional discrete-valued parameter vector. The algorithm is designed to find a function local optimum with the minimal number of evaluated points without requiring function derivatives. The algorithm is applied to frame-level rate-distortion (R-D) optimization(More)
