Elementary Gradient-Based Optimizers: CSLS and ISD

## Excerpt

Regardless of the DV dimension, the negative gradient indicates the direction of steepest decent, which is a logical direction to begin the search. This chapter presents two gradient-based searches: Cauchy’s sequential line search (CSLS) and incremental steepest descent (ISD). Although the exercises will primarily be in 2-D applications, these are applicable to N-D situations.
