Unconstrained global optimization using adaptive random search.
Based on the algorithm written in C for constrained global optimization in 1989/09/29 and published as:
A.R. Secchi and C.A. Perlingeiro, "Busca Aleatoria Adaptativa", in Proc. of XII Congresso Nacional de Matematica Aplicada e Computacional, Sao Jose do Rio Preto, SP, pp. 49-52 (1989).
It works, but is very slow, and often fails on complex problems.
I connected Giovani Tonel file to the OpenOpt project
& informed him (I hope my letter passed antispam filter OK)
if any pretensions will be received, I promise to exclude the one.
I have added some comments
