Hybrid Optimization

We present a hybrid optimization approach for solving global optimization problems, in particular automated parameter estimation models. The hybrid approach is based on the coupling of the Simultaneous Perturbation Stochastic Approximation (SPSA) and a Newton-Krylov Interior-Point method (NKIP) via a surrogate model.
