A Level-Value Estimation Algorithm and Its Stochastic Implementation for Global Optimization

In this paper, we propose a new method for finding global optimum of continuous optimization problems, namely Level-Value Estimation algorithm(LVEM). First we define the variance function v(c) and the mean deviation function m(c) with respect to a single variable (the level value c), and both of these functions depend on the optimized function f(x). We … Read more
