Brown Function

Updated: Jul 18, 2021

Mathematical Definition

Input Domain

Brown Function is usually evaluated for the range: -1≤ xi≤ 4 for i=1,….,n. This function is smooth.

Global Minima

The function has one global minimum f (x*) = =0 at x*=(0,...,0)

Description and Features

Brown Function is a unimodal optimization problem. It is scalable and is defined on n- dimensional space.
