Continuous Optimization

Participants

Asma Atamna Anne Auger Alexandre Chotard Nikolaus Hansen Yann Ollivier Marc Schoenauer Olivier Teytaud

Former Members

Youhei Akimoto Zyed Bouzrkouna Dimo Brockhoff Verena Heidrich-Meisner Mohamed Jebalia Ilya Loshchilov Raymond Ros

Research Themes

We are interested in stochastic search and optimization algorithms, which are often population based and typically derivative-free. We investigate aspects like local convergence, global search properties, noise in the objective function, adaptivity.

Applications

We are always interested in good candidates for internship, master thesis, or PhD. Please send an application to Anne DOT Auger AT inria DOT fr. A few internship topics are available here.
