Abstract:

CONCLUSIONS We have found an effective method for mixed variable problems ... BUT ... It requires serious thinking by the user as to what constitutes an acceptable solution for each problem It is not easy to incorporate surrogates with categorical variables It is unlikely to be effective for many categorical variables We have analyzed the method, BUT..., better results depend on the filter method for continuous variables.
