View source: R/design_experiment.R

This function implements the method by Weaver, et al. (2016) that uses Gaussian process (GP) optimization to estimate an optimal design for a stochastic design criterion.
This function can also optimize a deterministic design criterion as well. Validation of the fitted GP models is provided by the statistics described in Bastos and O'Hagan (2009).
For sequential physical experiments or computer experiments with an expensive simulator, one can repeatedly use this function to compute the next step's optimal design point.
For sequential computer experiments with inexpensive simulators, see `sequential_experiment`

which will automatically run the simulator and continue the sequential design automatically.

The design criterion (DC) is a stochastic or deterministic univariate function that measures the quality of a proposed design.
`GADGET`

assumes the design criterion must be minimized. For example, instead of maximizing the determinant of the Fisher-information matrix, `GADGET`

would minimize the negative determinant of the Fisher-information matrix.
If the DC is stochastic then the GP model is fit with a nugget effect and expected quantile improvement (EQI) is used to perform the GP optimization.
The optimal design is taken to be the design that maximizes EQI on the final optimization iteration.
If the DC is deterministic then the GP model is fit without a nugget effect and expected improvement (EI) is used to perform the optimization.
The optimal design is taken to be the design with smallest observed DC over all evaluation of the DC.

The GADGET represents designs as a d-length vector. The user supplied DC function must translate this vector into the apporiate form for computing the DC. The `upper_bound`

and `lower_bound`

arguments define bounds of each element in the vectorized design.
