The rate of convergence of a multidimensional random search is found to improve when the search region is restricted to a directed adaptive hypercone. The convergence properties of the hyperconical search algorithm are investigated and the scheme is applied to the problem of identifying twenty-two constants of a given chemical reaction from measured data.
