In recent years, the cross-entropy method has been successfully applied to a wide range of discrete optimization tasks. In this paper we consider the cross-entropy method in the context of continuous optimization. We demonstrate the effectiveness of the cross-entropy method for solving difficult continuous multi-extremal optimization problems, including(More)
Article describes the results of the development and using of Rare-Event Monte-Carlo Simulation Algorithms for Dynamic Fault Trees Estimation. For Fault Trees estimation usually analytical methods are used (Minimal Cut sets, Markov Chains, etc.), but for complex models with Dynamic Gates it is necessary to use Monte-Carlo simulation with combination of(More)
One of the important tasks of the Reliability Estimation is Analysis of the Fault Tree. A problem of Fault Trees analysis is considered one of the most complex ones, since structure of such trees is characterized by a considerable number of interconnections. Usually analytical methods are used and most applicable method is Minimal Cut Sets building and(More)
