## An Introduction to Performance Optimization

Preliminaries Nothing Performance Optimization1 Taylor series had been used for analyzing the performance surface and locating the optimum points of a certain performance index. This short post is a brief introduction to performance optimization and the following posts are the samples of three optimization algorithms categories: ‘Steepest Descent’ “Newton’s Method” ‘Conjugate Gradient’ Recall the analysis of the performance index, which is a function of the parameters of the model....
