Free search of real value: or how to make computers think

K. Penev, Alexander Gegov (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This book introduces in detail Free Search - a novel advanced method for search and optimisation. It also deals with some essential questions that have been raised in a strong debate following the publication of this method in journal and conference papers. In the light of this debate, Free Search deserves serious attention, as it appears to be superior to other competitive methods in the context of the experimental results obtained. This superiority is not only quantitative in terms of the actual optimal value found but also qualitative in terms of independence from initial conditions and adaptation capabilities in an unknown environment.
