On optimizing certain nonlinear convex functions which are partially defined by a simulation process Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper considers the problem of optimizing a nonlinear convex function which is, in part, defined by a simulation process. An iterative technique, based on contractive mapping properties, is given by which a selected class of such functions can be optimized. 1977 The Mathematical Programming Society.
