    A random search method, Optimized Step-Size Random Search (OSSRS), for function minimization is proposed. In this method the step-size is determined by fitting a quadratic for the function value in terms of the step-size in each of the random directions. The random direction is generated using a pseudorandom number generator with a normal distribution of zero mean and a given standard deviation.
