Abstract
Presented in this paper is a scheme for minimizing the cost function of a three-source technique to arrive at an approximation point (I,J) that is within one unit of the true minimum. The Line-Step algorithm is applied to several systems and is also compared to other minimization techniques, including the Equal Incremental Loss Algorithm. Variations are made on the Line-Step Algorithm for faster convergence and also to handle inequality constraints.
