A General Framework for Modeling and Processing Optimization Queries

Michael Gibas, Ning Zheng, Hakan Ferhatosmanoglu
2007 Very Large Data Bases Conference  
We propose a general class of queries, model-based optimization queries, in which a generic model is used to define a wide variety of queries involving an optimization objective function and/or a set of  ...  We cast such queries as members of the convex optimization (CP) model and provide a unified query processing framework for CP queries that I/O optimally accesses data and space partitioning index structures  ...  We find the minimum objective function for partition B and get the distance from the query point to the point where the constrained region and the partition B intersect, point c.  ...

Linas Stripinis, Remigijus Paulavičius
2022 arXiv   pre-print
A new partitioning and sampling scheme utilizes more comprehensive information about the objective function.  ...  A new deterministic approach combines halving (bisection) with a new multi-point sampling scheme in contrast to trisection and midpoint sampling used in the most existing DIRECT-type algorithms.  ...  Therefore, the set of POHs is enlarged with various size hyper-rectangles nearest the current minimum point.  ...
