Performance of CONDOR, a Parallel, Constrained extension of Powell’s UOBYQA algorithm. Experimental results and comparison with the DFO algorithm.

This paper presents an algorithmic extension of Powell’s UOBYQA algorithm (”Unconstrained Optimization BY Quadratical Approximation”). We start by summarizing the original algorithm of Powell and by presenting it in a more comprehensible form. Thereafter, we report comparative numerical results between UOBYQA, DFO and a parallel, constrained extension of UOBYQA that will be called in the … Read more
