Opti 3: Implements a new deterministic DIRECT algorithm and it converges
much faster than does Simulated Annealing. Several modifictions have also been
made to the DIRECT algorithm to improve its efficiency and flexibility,
including three locally biased variations , new geometric constraints and
modifications to handle the manufacturing tolerance and the hidden constraints.
The DIRECT algorithm is found to be superior to the Simulated Annealing
algorithm in slider ABS optimization. Coded in C and distributed with
executable file. Several matlab programs are also included for the
pre-processing and post-processing purposes.

Implements more powerful Adaptive Simulated Annealing algorithm as well as other variations in the Simulated Annealing family. Both CML rectangular mesh solver Quick4 and triangular mesh solver Quick5 can be used to evaluate the sample ABS designs generated by the simulated annealing algorithm. Coded by C and distributed with executable file. Several matlab programs are also included for the post-processing purpose.
