### Global Optimization when the exponential function is involved

I wonder if there are methods to determine the global optimum of MINLP problems, when the nonlinear functions involved are only of the form $Z = Y e^{- \alpha X}$, where $Y \ge 0$ and $X \ge 0$. Are ...

### Heuristic methods for optimising complex black box function over permutations/ranks?

Suppose I have a set $S=\{1,2,\dots,500\}$ and some function $f(\sigma)$ from the permutations $\operatorname{Perm}(S) \rightarrow \mathbb{R}$ to be minimized. The function is complex (simulation ...

### Simulation optimisation: Monte carlo simulation, regression, optimise within regression model?

Can you help me identify if this technique has a standard name to help me explore the literature? Suppose I have a black-box stochastic simulation parameterised by $X=[x_1,...,x_p]$ with some single ...
What (deterministic) global optimization packages support trigonometric functions such as $\sin, \cos, \tan$ in the constraints or objective function? What limitations do they have? I am not asking ...
