Step size

From Glossary

Jump to: navigation, search

This is a scalar LaTeX: (s) in an algorithm of the form: LaTeX: \textstyle x' = x + sd, where LaTeX: d is the direction vector. After LaTeX: d is chosen (nonzero), the step size is specified. One step size selection rule is line search; another is a fixed sequence, like LaTeX: \textstyle s_k = 1/k.
