In this paper we address the global optimization of functions subject to bound and linear constraints without using derivatives of the objective function. We investigate the use of derivative-free models based on radial basis functions (RBFs) in the search step of direct-search methods of directional type. We also study the application of algorithms based on difference of convex (d.c.) functions programming to solve the resulting subproblems which consist of the minimization of the RBF modelsdoi:10.1007/s11750-011-0193-9 fatcat:5mlnvxnvobgnhpw3beaq7uovam
