In this paper, the Bayesian methods of global optimization are considered. They provide the minimal expected deviation from the global minimum. It is shown that, using the Bayesian methods, the asymptotic density of calculations of the objective function is much greater around the point of global minimum. The relation of this density to the parameters of the method and to the function is defined.

Algorithms are described which apply the Bayesian methods to problems with linear and nonlinear constraints. The Bayesian approach to global multiobjective optimization is defined. Interactive procedures and reduction of multidimensional data in the case of global optimization are discussed.
