Dear Soren. You are right. Thank you for finding this. I will update the file right now.

14 Mar 2014 Global Optimization with MATLAB Demo files from the 2010 webinar "Global Optimization with MATLAB Products" Author: Stuart Kozola

Stuart,
Thank you very much for this tutorial. Very helpful. In particular the way you tweak the ga to make behave like a swarm is nice. Question: is ga an implementation of the differential evolution of Storn and Price (1997)?

Thank you, Jiro, for finding this error. I've just uploaded a corrected version. In addition, it now also supports logical arrays.

Thank you Chang. I should have tested. I've just uploaded a small bugfix.

A great addition to the Fileexchange!

Just a quick comment. I don't know why no one else faces the same troubles, but on my system (Matlab 2011a) the call:
test=paste;

fails with the following error:
---
??? Maximum recursion limit of 500 reached. Use
set(0,'RecursionLimit',N)
to change the limit. Be aware that exceeding your
available stack space can
crash MATLAB and/or your computer.

Error in ==> usejava
---

When I looked into the code with debug, I was able to identify it as the line 134:
p = clipboard('paste');
for some reason this line "calls" the "paste"-file again, leading to infinite recursion.
(although I don't know why clipboard calls a function instead of performing its "supposed" action)

Anyways: I solved the problem by simply changing the filename:
paste.m -> mypaste.m
copy.m -> mycopy.m

And in addition in "copy.m" you also need to change the line 111 to "mycopy".

After this it works like a charm. :-)

21 Oct 2014 Log of factorial of large numbers computes log10 of the factorial Author: Yvan Lengwiler John D'Errico

For those who don't want to remember the use of gammaln as implemented inside, this adds a few extras too. It is complete, with good help.

This allowed me to compute Fisher's exact test for contingency tables for large n. Excellent, thanks a lot!
