Global Optimization: Software, Test Problems, and Applications

Janos D. Pinter (jdpinter***at***is.dal.ca)

Abstract: We provide a concise review of the most prominent global optimization (GO) strategies currently available. This is followed by a discussion of GO software, test problems and several important types of applications, with additional pointers. The exposition is concentrated around topics related to continuous GO, although in certain aspects it is also pertinent to analogous issues in combinatorial optimization.

Keywords: global optimization, solution strategies, software, test problems, illustrative applications.
