Python Implementation of Bohachevsky Function

Updated: Jul 18, 2021

Mathematical Definition

Input Domain

It can be defined on any input domain but itโ€™s usually evaluated on the square ๐‘ฅ๐‘– โˆˆ [โˆ’100,100] for i=1,2

Global Minima

It has one local minima at ๐‘“(๐‘ฅ โˆ— ) = 0 ๐‘Ž๐‘ก ๐‘ฅ โˆ— = (0,0).

Description and Features

Bohachevsky functions are continuous.

The function is defined on 2- dimensional space.

Bohachevsky functions are unimodal.

The functions all have the same similar bowl shape
