A Model Reference Adaptive Search Method for Stochastic Global Optimization Jiaqiao Hu Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics, State University of New York, Stony Brook, [email protected] Global optimization is a branch of applied mathematics and numerical analysis that attempts to find the global minima or maxima of a function or a set of functions on a given set.

It is usually described as a minimization problem because the maximization of the real-valued function () is obviously equivalent to the minimization of the function ():= (−) ⋅ (). The main topic of this book is optimization problems involving uncertain parameters, for which stochastic models are available.

Although many ways have been proposed to model uncertain quantities, stochastic models have proved their flexibility and usefulness in diverse areas of science.

This is mainly due to solid mathematical foundations and. the many stochastic methods using information such as gradients of the loss function.

Section discusses some general issues in stochastic optimization. Section discusses random search methods, which are simple and surprisingly powerful in many applications. Section discusses stochastic approximation. Adaptive Random Search, ARS, Adaptive Step Size Random Search, ASSRS, Variable Step-Size Random Search.

Stochastic Optimization The majority of the algorithms to be described in this book are comprised of probabilistic and stochastic processes. What differentiates the 'stochastic algorithms' in this chapter from the remaining algorithms is the specific lack of 1) an inspiring system, and 2) a metaphorical explanation.
