Multimodal optimization
Multimodal functions have more than one optima, but can
either have a single or more than one global optima. In
the first case, the problem that a optimization algorithm
has to deal with is to avoid premature convergence to
a local optimum. In the second, the presence of several
solutions with equal optimum fitness arises the issue of
how an algorithm can locate all the global optima... [+]
