Stefan M. Wild: Robust Design and Optimization with Missing Derivatives

Place: Online via Zoom

Many science and engineering problems involve models, objectives, and
constraints that are available only by observation or simulation.
Consequently, derivative information is often incomplete. We
review algorithms for so-called derivative-free (or "zero-order")
optimization and illustrate ways that mathematical structure can be
exploited to significantly improve performance in a variety of
real-world settings.
