Abstract: The paper analyzes the regression problem for small and undersized sample. Two classical algorithms are compared: Simulated Annealing (SA) versus Repetitive Stochastic Guesstimation (RSG). An improved version of RSG is built and compared to the previous two algorithms. The author concludes that a complete comparison among SA, RSG and RSGBOOT has to be done preliminary on every model to be estimated since these stochastic optimization algorithms are very sensitive to model specification.
