Comparing search strategies for finding global optima on energy landscapes


We provide some tests of the convex global underestimator Ž . CGU algorithm, which aims to find global minima on funnel-shaped energy landscapes. We use two different potential functions—the reduced Lennard]Jones cluster potential, and the modified Sun protein folding potential, to compare the CGU algorithm with the simplest versions of the traditional… (More)
