Part of the Nonconvex Optimization and Its Applications book series (NOIA, volume 45)


Coming back to optimization problems of the type (1.1.8), i.e.,
, let us accept that the sought approximation to the global optimizer x* is x* N provided by the uniform grid technique (1.1.13)–(1.1.15) for some specified number N of trials. This assumption, which is quite natural due to the relation (1.1.17), reduces the continuous problem (2.1.1) to the discrete problem of finding the node x α of the uniform grid
, satisfying the inequalities
, where
