We propose a factorization-free method for equality-constrained optimization based on a problem in which all constraints are systematically regularized. ...

BibTeX referenceStabilized optimization via an NCL algorithm

For optimization problems involving many nonlinear inequality constraints, we extend the bound-constrained (BCL) and linearly-constrained (LCL) augmented-La...

Despite the lack of theoretical and practical convergence support, the Nelder-Mead (NM) algorithm is widely used to solve unconstrained optimization proble...

BibTeX reference

We consider the solution of derivative-free optimization problems with continuous, integer, discrete and categorical variables in the context of costly black...

BibTeX referenceCCGO: Fast heuristic global optimization

Global optimization problems are very hard to solve, especially when the nonlinear constraints are highly nonconvex, which can result in a large number of di...

BibTeX reference

We study X-ray tomograqphic reconstruction using statistical methods. The problem is expressed in cylindrical coordinates, which yield significant computatio...

The `\(k\)`

-means is a benchmark algorithm used in cluster analysis. It belongs to the large category of
heuristics based on location-allocation steps that ...

The balanced clustering problem consists of partitioning a set of `\(n\)`

objects into `\(K\)`

equal-sized clusters as long as
`\(n\)`

is a multiple of `(K...
