The aim of this special session is to bring together researchers to discuss about recent advances in set oriented numerical methods in particular in the context of optimization. Methods of this kind iterate (or evolve) entire sets instead of considering point-wise iterative methods and are thus in particular
advantageous if a thorough investigation of the entire domain is required and/or the solution set is
not given by a singleton.
In this session we welcome (but are not restricted to) any contributions in the fields of
- cell mapping techniques
- subdivision techniques
- swarm-like strategies
