Maxima And Minima

Finding global maxima and minima is the goal of optimization. If a function is continuous on a closed interval, then by the extreme value theorem global maxima and minima exist. Furthermore, a global maximum (or minimum) either must be a local maximum (or minimum) in the interior of the domain, or must lie on the boundary of the domain. So a method of finding a global maximum (or minimum) is to look at all the local maxima (or minima) in the interior, and also look at the maxima (or minima) of the points...

Finding local minimum energy conformation for potential energy function. Minimization does not give the global minima. It is done for achieving the energetically stable conformations. Minimization is carried out for 35000 steps at temperature using NAMD. 5) After minimization, water box is added using VMD. This water coordinates is obtained from pure water simulation...

Optical Character Recognition for Cursive Handwriting

distances. Local minima of the word image are, generally, chosen as the restricted set of points for detection of lower baseline. Therefore, some local minima need to be pruned to remove the ones that do not lie on the baseline such as the minima on the descending part of the characters. Most of the time the minimum of a descending character is relatively lower than the minimum of a normal character. However, it is practically impossible to find a heuristic for correctly eliminating those minima, which spoil...
