Set Oriented Methods

Chair: Dr. Carlos Ignacio Hernández

Set oriented methods have proven to be very efficient in the numerical treatment of various classes of global optimization problems in academy and industry and are widely used in many fields, such as Engineering and Finance. This special session serves as a platform for researchers fromall over the world to present and discuss recent advances in set orientednumerical methods in particular in the context of optimization.  Methods of this kind iterate (or evolve) entire sets instead of consideringpoint-wise iterative methods and are thus in particularadvantageous if a thoro ugh investigation of the entire domain is required and/or the solution set is not given by a singleton.

 Contributions addressing the following (and related) topics are welcome:

  • cell mapping techniques
  • subdivision techniques
  • continuation methods
  • swarm-like strategies
  • methods for all kinds of optimization problems, including scalar,
  • multi-objective, bi-level, and dynamic optimization problems,
  • applications to real-world problems

All submission will be peer-reviewed by a panel of international experts.
