Objective-Domain Dual Decomposition: An Effective Approach to Optimizing Partially Differentiable Objective Functions.

Summary of "Objective-Domain Dual Decomposition: An Effective Approach to Optimizing Partially Differentiable Objective Functions."

This paper addresses a class of optimization problems in which either part of the objective function is differentiable while the rest is nondifferentiable or the objective function is differentiable in only part of the domain. Accordingly, we propose a dual-decomposition-based approach that includes both objective decomposition and domain decomposition. In the former, the original objective function is decomposed into several relatively simple subobjectives to isolate the nondifferentiable part of the objective function, and the problem is consequently formulated as a multiobjective optimization problem (MOP). In the latter decomposition, we decompose the domain into two subdomains, that is, the differentiable and nondifferentiable domains, to isolate the nondifferentiable domain of the nondifferentiable subobjective. Subsequently, the problem can be optimized with different schemes in the different subdomains. We propose a population-based optimization algorithm, called the simulated water-stream algorithm (SWA), for solving this MOP. The SWA is inspired by the natural phenomenon of water streams moving toward a basin, which is analogous to the process of searching for the minimal solutions of an optimization problem. The proposed SWA combines the deterministic search and heuristic search in a single framework. Experiments show that the SWA yields promising results compared with its existing counterparts.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A family of transcription factors characterized by the presence of a bipartite DNA-binding domain known as the POU domain. The POU domain contains two subdomains, a POU-specific domain and a POU-homeodomain. The POU domain was originally identified as a region of approximately 150 amino acids shared between the Pit-1, Oct-1, Oct-2, and Unc-86 transcription factors.

A conserved protein interaction domain of the death domain superfamily that is structurally similar to the DEATH EFFECTOR DOMAIN and CASPASE RECRUITMENT DOMAIN. Death domains bind each other to form oligomers and occur on DEATH DOMAIN RECEPTORS, where they are required for APOPTOSIS signaling and non-apoptotic functions.
