This paper describes the use of a modified Differential Evolution strategy that identifies multiple solutions to the numerical optimization of multidimensional objective functions. Traditional approaches to this class of problems, such as Newton’s Method, are restricted for use on continuous, differentiable functions; in addition, the solution identified by these approaches is often dependent upon the initial guess. The ability to find the multiple solutions is therefore restricted by one’s… CONTINUE READING
