    The purposes of this discussion paper are twofold. First, features of an objective function landscape which provide barriers to rapid finding of the global optimum are described. Second, stochastic algorithms are discussed and their performance examined, both theoretically and computationally, as the features change. The paper lays a foundation for the later findings paper.
