A situation in which each of two processors has access to a different convex function f//i ,i equals 1,2 defined on a common bounded domain is considered. The processes are to exchange a number of binary messages, according to some protocol, until they find a point in the domain at which f//1 plus f//2 is minimized, within some prespecified accuracy epsilon . Protocols under which the number of exchanged messages is minimized are determined.
