[Numpy-discussion] hairy optimization problem
Wed May 6 14:16:12 CDT 2009
I have a function f(x,y) which produces N values [v1,v2,v3 .... vN]
where some of the values are None (only found after evaluation)
each evaluation of "f" is expensive and N is large.
I want N x,y pairs which produce the optimal value in each column.
A brute force approach would be to generate
[v21,v22,v23 ....... ]
then locate the maximum of each column.
This is far too slow ......Any other ideas?
