Chebychop: a New Method for Constrained Global Optimization

Authors: John Mark Vincent

A new method for multi-dimensional global optimization is presented. The fundamental idea is to obtain the Chebyshev norm from a set of L_p=norms; an original extrapolation procedure is used to converge to the optimum value, which is identical to the Chebyshev norm. This allows the optima to be efficiently pin-pointed by repeatedly bisecting the domain. Estimates of computational cost indicate that the method is fast.
