This is a comprehensive archive of online information on (almost exclusively non-commercial) global optimization, and somewhat less comprehensive on local optimization, collected by Arnold Neumaier on the web server http://www.mat.univie.ac.at/~neum/glopt.html of the Computational Mathematics group at the University of Vienna, Austria. Later on this page there is a Table of Contents of this Site.
Please help to keep the archive up to date by informing me at Arnold.Neumaier@univie.ac.at about new or missing electronic documents related to public domain work on global optimization, and about links that are no longer working.
Related, but not formally part of this site are two other sites maintained by our research group in Vienna:
Since starting this optimization page (September 1, 1995), this page was accessed steadily by about 30-40 different computers per day (last counted in 1999).
Updates to the contents are made quite frequently. I try to keep a complete coverage of public domain work on continuous global optimization; many references to combinatorial and local optimization are included for my (and your) convenience, but there I don't aim at completeness. Thanks to all who helped me by providing useful information.
The archive was reorganized on November 12, 1996; it now contains more than 1000 links to sources outside our server.
Please write me to Arnold.Neumaier@univie.ac.at if your own work is not referenced, if you know some other useful link to public domain work that is missing here, or if you find any invalid links.
In the following table of contents, italic headings correspond to different files, while roman headings correspond to sections within a file. There are further files not in this table of contents, accessible through links given in individual files.
