 'lm'
 'grad'
 'lsqnonlin'
 'fmincon'
Numerical search method used for iterative parameter estimation,
specified as the commaseparated pair consisting of 'SearchMethod'
and
one of the following:
'auto'
— A combination of
the line search algorithms, 'gn'
, 'lm'
, 'gna'
,
and 'grad'
methods is tried in sequence at each
iteration. The first descent direction leading to a reduction in estimation
cost is used.
'gn'
— Subspace GaussNewton least squares search.
Singular values of the Jacobian matrix less than
GnPinvConstant*eps*max(size(J))*norm(J)
are discarded
when computing the search direction. J is the Jacobian
matrix. The Hessian matrix is approximated as
J^{T}J. If there is no
improvement in this direction, the function tries the gradient direction.
'gna'
— Adaptive subspace GaussNewton search.
Eigenvalues less than gamma*max(sv)
of the Hessian are
ignored, where sv contains the singular values of the
Hessian. The GaussNewton direction is computed in the remaining subspace.
gamma has the initial value
InitialGnaTolerance
(see Advanced
in
'SearchOptions'
for more information). This value is
increased by the factor LMStep
each time the search fails to
find a lower value of the criterion in fewer than five bisections. This value is
decreased by the factor 2*LMStep
each time a search is
successful without any bisections.
'lm'
— LevenbergMarquardt
least squares search, where the next parameter value is pinv(H+d*I)*grad
from
the previous one. H is the Hessian, I is
the identity matrix, and grad is the gradient. d is
a number that is increased until a lower value of the criterion is
found.
'grad'
— Steepest descent
least squares search.
'lsqnonlin'
— Trustregionreflective
algorithm of lsqnonlin
(Optimization Toolbox). Requires Optimization Toolbox™ software.
'fmincon'
— Constrained nonlinear solvers. You can
use the sequential quadratic programming (SQP) and trustregionreflective
algorithms of the fmincon
(Optimization Toolbox) solver. If you have
Optimization Toolbox software, you can also use the interiorpoint and activeset
algorithms of the fmincon
solver. Specify the algorithm in
the SearchOptions.Algorithm
option. The
fmincon
algorithms may result in improved estimation
results in the following scenarios:
Constrained minimization problems when there are bounds imposed on the model parameters.
Model structures where the loss function is a nonlinear or non smooth function of the parameters.
Multioutput model estimation. A determinant loss function
is minimized by default for multioutput model estimation.
fmincon
algorithms are able to minimize such loss
functions directly. The other search methods such as
'lm'
and 'gn'
minimize the
determinant loss function by alternately estimating the noise variance
and reducing the loss value for a given noise variance value. Hence, the
fmincon
algorithms can offer better efficiency
and accuracy for multioutput model estimations.
'SearchOptions'

pair consisting of 'SearchOptions'
