Abstract

Building on a martingale approach to global optimization, a powerful stochastic search scheme for the global optimum of cost functions is proposed using change of measures on the states that evolve as diffusion processes and splitting of the state-space along the lines of a Bayesian game. To begin with, the efficacy of the optimizer, when contrasted with one of the most efficient existing schemes, is assessed against a family of No-hard benchmark problems. Then, using both simulated and experimental data, potentialities of the new proposal are further explored in the context of an inverse problem of significance in photoacoustic imaging, wherein the superior''reconstruction features of a global search vis-a-vis the commonly adopted local or quasi-local schemes are brought into relief.
