EFFICIENT METHOD OF OPTIMIZATION OF PHYSICAL PROCESSESV. K. Tolstykh UDC 519.6:536 New extremum algorithms which provide a uniform convergence to an optimum value in the space of functions are suggested. Their distinctive feature lies in analytical determination of the gradient of the objective functional of the problem of optimization and in original control of the direction of descent of a relatively infinite-dimensional gradient.
