On the Globally Concavized Filled Function Method

In this paper we present a new definition on the globally concavized filled function for the continuous global minimization problem, which was modified from that by Ge [3]. A new class of globally concavized filled functions are constructed. These functions contain two easily determinable parameters, which are not dependent on the radius of the basin … Read more

On the globally convexized filled function method for box constrained continuous global optimization

In this paper we show that the unconstrained continuous global minimization problem can not be solved by any algorithm. So without loss of generality we consider the box constrained continuous global minimization problem. We present a new globally convexized filled function method for the problem. The definition of globally convexized filled function is adapted from … Read more
