A Pattern Search Filter Method for Nonlinear Programming without Derivatives
This paper formulates and analyzes a pattern search method for general constrained optimization based on filter methods for step acceptance. Roughly, a filter method accepts a step that either improves the objective function ...
Mixed Variable Optimization of the Number and Composition of Heat Intercepts in a Thermal Insulation System
In the literature, thermal insulation systems with a fixed number of heat intercepts have been optimized with respect to intercept locations and temperatures. The number of intercepts and the types of insulators that ...
Analysis of Generalized Pattern Searches
This paper contains a new convergence analysis for the Lewis and Torczon generalized pattern search (GPS) class of methods for unconstrained and linearly constrained optimization. This analysis is motivated by a desire to ...
