When We Know the Number of Local Maxima , Then We Can Compute All of Them

Abstract

In many practical situations, we need to compute local maxima. In general, it is not algorithmically possible, given a computable function, to compute the locations of all its local maxima. We show, however, that if we know the number of local maxima, then such an algorithm is already possible. Interestingly, for global maxima, the situation is different… (More)
