and anyone else who wants to make a contribution

This webpage, which is under construction, will list a variety of test problems, data and cross-entropy programs (written in Matlab). The idea is to make a comprehensive ``ToolBox'' for CE that is accessible to the ever-growing CE community and that can be used to get faster and more accurate CE programs and, allows us to compare CE with other methods.

Visit the CE Home Page: http://www.cemethod.org to learn about this simple, versatile and powerful new method.
