DESCRIPTION:Trust-region methods are a broad class of methods for continuou
soptimization that finds application in a variety of problemsand contexts.
The basic principle consists of iteratively optimizinga model of the obje
ctive function in a restricted region. In particular\,they have been studi
ed and applied for problems without using derivatives\,where models are bu
ilt solely by sampled function values.Trust-region derivative-free methods
are guaranteed toconverge for deterministic smooth functions\, in the sen
seof generating a sequence or run of iterates converging to criticality(of
first and second order type). Such a convergence is calledglobal as there
is no assumption on the starting point.It has also been proved that the o
rder of complexity\, or theglobal rate in which criticality decays\, match
es thederivative-based case.In the deterministic non-smooth case\, and giv
en some knowledgeof the non-smooth structure\, it is possible to design gl
oballyconvergent approaches with appropriated complexity\, either bysmooth
ing the original function in some parametrized way or bymoving a compositi
ve non-smooth structure directly to thetrust-region subproblem.Trust-regio
n methods can be based as well on probabilistic modelsof the objective fun
ction\, thus considering the derivative-freecase where sample points are r
andomly generated. Such methodsexhibit similar properties of convergence a
nd complexity as thoseusing deterministic models\, now not for all runs bu
t for aa set of those that occurs with probability one.Finally\, we are ob
serving now the first attempts for thestochastic case\, where the objectiv
e function can only beobserved\, and possibly approximated by sample avera
ging.This talk will attempt to overview all such developments andpoint out
what still remains unknown.
