An improved randomized algorithm with noise level tuning for large-scale noisy unconstrained DFO problems

In this paper, a new randomized solver (called VRDFON) for noisy unconstrained derivative-free optimization (DFO) problems is discussed. Complexity result in the presence of noise for nonconvex functions is studied. Two effective ingredients of VRDFON are an improved derivative-free line search algorithm with many heuristic enhancements and quadratic models in adaptively determined subspaces. Numerical results … Read more
