Flexible organic materials possessing useful electrical properties, such as ferroelectricity, are of crucial importance in the engineering of electronic devices. Up until now, however, only ferroelectric polymers have intrinsically met this flexibility requirement, leaving small-molecule organic ferroelectrics with room for improvement. Since both… (More)
We present preliminary results of a performance evaluation study of several gradient-based state-of-the-art optimization methods for solving the nonlinear minimization problem arising in model-reduced gradient-based history matching. The issues discussed also apply to other areas, such as production optimization in closed-loop reservoir management.
