An optimization method to compensate accelerator performance drifts

  title={An optimization method to compensate accelerator performance drifts},
  author={Zhe Zhang and Minghao Song and Xiaobiao Huang},
Accelerator performance often deteriorates with time during a long period of operation due to secular changes in the machine components or the surrounding environment. In many cases some tuning knobs are effective in compensating the performance drifts and optimization methods can be used to find the ideal machine setting. However, such intervention usually cannot be done without interrupting user operation as the optimization algorithms can substantially impact the machine performance. We… 


An algorithm for online optimization of accelerators
Adaptive and Safe Bayesian Optimization in High Dimensions via One-Dimensional Subspaces
This work proposes an algorithm (LineBO) that restricts the problem to a sequence of iteratively chosen one-dimensional sub-problems that can be solved efficiently and is the first safe Bayesian optimization algorithm with theoretical guarantees applicable in high-dimensional settings.
Safe Exploration for Optimization with Gaussian Processes
This work develops an efficient algorithm called SAFEOPT, and theoretically guarantees its convergence to a natural notion of optimum reachable under safety constraints, as well as two real applications: movie recommendation, and therapeutic spinal cord stimulation.
