Abstract

A simple optimization procedure for constraint based problems which works without an objective function is described. The absence of an objective function makes the problem formulation particularly simple. The new method lends itself to parallel computation and is well suited for tasks where a family of solutions is required, trade-off situations have to be dealt with or the design center has to be found.
