1 Introduction An important research activity in the area of global optimization is to determine an effective strategy for solving least squares problems that commonly arises in science and engineering. Our objectives are:  To present a numerical comparison of optimization strategies applied to a nonzero residual problem.  To introduce preliminary numerical results of a proposed novel algorithm that seems to work best. Numerical Comparison of Optimization Strategies for Solving a Nonzero Residual Nonlinear Least Squares Problem Brenda Bueno Advisors: Drs. L. Velázquez and M. Argáez Department of Mathematical Sciences University of Texas at El Paso Sponsored by the Minority Access to Research Careers Program and the US Department of the Army DAAD Global Optimization Problem Types of minima Global Minima for Least Squares Problems Problem Data and Model Hyperboloid Least Squares Problem Our Goal Numerical Results Future Work 1) To add a multistart technique 2) To improve the rate of convergence of the algorithm 3) To include constraints on the variables 4) To test the algorithm on more problems Contact Information Brenda Bueno, Undergraduate Student University of Texas at El Paso Department of Mathematical Sciences 500 W.
