A New Integral Function Algorithm for Global Optimization and Its Application to the Data Clustering Problem
The filled function method is an approach to finding global minimum points of multidimensional unconstrained global optimization problems. The conventional parametric filled functions have computational weaknesses when they are employed in some benchmark optimization functions. This paper proposes a new integral function algorithm based on the auxiliary function approach. The proposed method can successfully be used to find the global minimum point of a function of several variables. Some testing global optimization problems have been used to show the ability of this recommended method. The integral function algorithm is then implemented to solve the center-based data clustering problem. The results show that the proposed algorithm can solve the problem successfully.
