Optimistic optimization of deterministic functions without the knowledge of its smoothness

We consider a global optimization problem of a deterministic function f in a semimetric space, given a finite budget of n evaluations. The function f is assumed to be locally smooth (around one of its global maxima) with respect to a semi-metric l. We describe two algorithms based on optimistic exploration that use a hierarchical partitioning of the space… (More)
