Global Optimization

A large collection of practical global optimization problems with descriptions, code, and examples.

Global Minimum

The Fortran version (0.1Mb)
The C++ version(0.1Mb)

Global Minimum is described in J. Mockus, Bayesian Approach to Global Optimization.Kluwer Academic Publishers , Dordrecht, 1989. You can also get the software at: fortran version C version.

My interests

How to solve, simplify, or focus the problems involving control and optimization of complex dynamic systems via use of domain specific visualizations.
