We present a novel response surface method for global optimisation of an expensive and noisy (black-box) objective function, where error bounds on the deviation of the observed noisy function values from their true counterparts are available. The method is based on the well-established RBF method by Gutmann (2001a,c) for minimising an expensive and deterministic objective function, which has become popular both from a theoretical and practical perspective. To construct suitable radial basis function approximants to the objective function and to determine new sample points for successive evaluation of the expensive noisy objective, the method uses a regularised least-squares criterion. In particular, new points are defined by means of a target value, analogous to the original RBF method. We provide essential convergence results, and address some details regarding the numerical implementation of the method.
