  author={M. Montaz Ali and Aimo A. T{\"o}rn and Sami Viitanen},
  journal={J. Global Optimization},
In this paper we propose a new version of the Controlled Random Search (CRS) algorithm of Price 13, 14, 15]. The new algorithm has been tested on thirteen global optimization test problems. Numerical experiments indicate that the resulting algorithm performs considerably better than the earlier versions of the CRS algorithms. The algorithm, therefore, could ooer a reasonable alternative to many currently available stochastic algorithms, especially for problems requiring`direct search' type… CONTINUE READING
