Simulated Annealing Model Search for Subset Selection in Screening Experiments

Summary: [This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.] Typical subset selection methods do not work well with the large numbers of variables, small number of trials, and structural constraints of screening experiments. A new method of model selection using an intentionally nonconvergent stochastic search to generate a large number of well-fitting models is proposed. Actual selection of a model is treated as feature extraction problem using the generated set of models. Both a graphic method and an automatic method of selection are proposed.
