K×n Let (Λ1 )1,1 , · · · , (ΛK )n,n be ordered monotonically decreasing into {λt }t=1 . j (i) = max j| (Λi ) j, j > 0 and let K n = ∑ j (i) ≤ min {Kn, Km} . i=1 Step 2: GWF with Fibonacci Search. Let Sk = 1 k P − (k − 1) 1 k−1 1 −∑ λk t=1 λt . Search k∗ = max {k|Sk > 0, 1 ≤ k ≤ n} and ki∗ = max j| (Λi ) j, j = λk , Sk > 0, 1 ≤ k ≤ n . Here, the Fibonacci approximation ratio 13 and 23 are used for searching k∗ and ki∗ , and this method is called the Fibonacci search. To avoid repeating, the searching of k∗ may be seen in [1] for the detail.
