Based on previously developed Mode Pursuing Sampling (MPS) approach for continuous variables, a variation of MPS for discrete variable global optimization problems on expensive black-box functions is developed in this paper. The proposed method, namely, the discrete variable MPS (D-MPS) method, differs from its continuous variable version not only on… CONTINUE READING
