Shashikala, H and Sancheti, NK and Keerthi, SS (1992) A New Approach to Global Optimization Using Ideas from Nonlinear Stability Theory. In: IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems, 1992. ISCAS '92. Proceedings., 1992, 3-6 May, San Diego,CA, Vol.6, 2817 -2820.
A new method for determing and connecting all the local minima and local maxima of a function on a compact manifold is given. The method is based on properties of stability regions associated with the equilibria of the gradient vector field. Applications of the method include global optimization and nonlinear equation solving.
