ABSTRACT In this paper, we propose a filled function method for constrained global optimization. This filled function contains only one parameter which is easily to be chosen. Then we investigate the properties of this function and design a new algorithm based on this function. Last, we make a numerical test. The numerical results show the efficiency of this global optimization method.

    ABSTRACT: This paper is concerned with filled function techniques for unconstrained global minimization of a continuous function of several variables. More general forms of filled functions are presented for smooth and non-smooth optimization problems. These functions have either one or two adjustable parameters. Conditions on functions and on the values of parameters are given so that the constructed functions have the desired properties of filled functions.

    ABSTRACT: Seeking global optima of an unconstrained and multi-modal global optimization problem minx∈Ωf(x) by constructing a filled function is concerned in this paper. On the basis of analyzing filled functions presented before, a new filled function is proposed, and it is proved to meet the properties of a filled function. Moreover, solutions of numerical experiments show that the function is quite effective.
