Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


We consider discrete optimization problems with the objective functions which can be defined as a response to a controllable real-time process, or obtained through computer simulation. To solve the problems, a random search algorithm and its parallel implementation are developed. A performance analysis of both serial and parallel algorithms is given, and related numerical results are discussed.
