A Fully Distribute Parallel Global Search Algorithm

  title={A Fully Distribute Parallel Global Search Algorithm},
  author={Layne T. Watson and Chuck Baker},
The n-dimensional direct search algorithm DIRECT of Jones, Perttunen, and Stuckman has attracted recent attention from the multidisciplinary design optimization community. Since DIRECT only requires function values (or ranking) and balances global exploration with local refinement better than n-dimensional bisection, it is well suited to the noisy function values typical of realistic simulations. While not efficient for high accuracy optimization, DIRECT is appropriate for the sort of global… CONTINUE READING
