Benchmarking Derivative-Free Optimization Algorithms

Jorge J. Moré and Stefan M. Wild


This page contains supplemental information for the paper:

Users interested in the use of the techniques described in this paper (data and performance profiles) for benchmarking derivative-free solvers should consult the results of our (ever-changing) shootout of derivative-free solvers. We hope to update these results as additional codes are developed and submitted.

The following information is provided to encourage the benchmarking of derivative-free optimization solvers. Additional solvers, application problems, comments, questions, and suggestions should be addressed to Stefan Wild at
