Methods of Optimum Search
Often when optimizing (improving) the performance of a process we are in a position where the objective function F = F(yi) can be defined in terms of the performance variables each of which is also measurable at any given moment of time. That is, we are able to evaluate F at all times. It may be, however, that the model relating the dependent performance variables to the controllable variables yi = yi(xj) is not known.
