Chaotic descent method and fractal conjecture. (English) Zbl 0983.74080
From the summary: We attempt to utilize computational instabilities in solving systems of nonlinear equations and optimization theory that results in development of a new method, chaotic descent. The method is based on descending to global minima via regions that are the source of computational chaos. Also, we present a fractal conjecture that in the future might lead towards direct solving of systems of nonlinear equations.
