    A new method for derivative-free optimization is presented. It is designed for solving problems in which the objective function is smooth and the number of variables is moderate, but the gradient is not available. The method generates a model that interpolates the objective function at a set of...

    Finding optimal designs for generalized linear models is a challenging problem. Recent research has identified the structure of optimal designs for generalized linear models with single or multiple unrelated explanatory variables that appear as first-order terms in the predictor. We consider...

    We consider the famous Hamiltonian cycle problem (HCP) embedded in a Markov decision process (MDP). More specifically, we consider the HCP as an optimisation problem over the space of occupation measures induced by the MDP's stationary policies. In recent years, this approach to the HCP has led...

    In this paper, we have applied Cox's procedure for non-tested hypotheses tests to the problem of testing a logarithmic versus a linear model. Section 1 derived the statistics and presented formulae for their calculation. We also presented empirical evidence which suggests that the large sample...

    When young children attempt to locate the positions of numerals on a number line, the positions are often logarithmically rather than linearly distributed. This finding has been taken as evidence that the children represent numbers on a mental number line that is logarithmically calibrated. This...

    The number line task is often used to assess children's and adults' underlying representations of integers. Traditional bounded number line tasks, however, have limitations that can lead to misinterpretation. Here we present a new task, an unbounded number line task, that overcomes these...
