Аннотация: In the present paper we describe new heuristic technique, which can be applied to the optimization of pseudo-Boolean functions including Black-Box functions. This technique is based on a simple procedure which consists in transition from the optimization problem over Boolean hypercube to the optimization problem of auxiliary function in a specially constructed metric space. It is shown that there is a natural connection between the points of the original Boolean hypercube and points from new metric space. For a Boolean hypercube with fixed dimension it is possible to construct a number of such metric spaces. The proposed technique can be considered as a special case of Variable Neighborhood Search, which is focused on pseudo-Boolean optimization. Preliminary computational results show high efficiency of the proposed technique on some reasonably hard problems. Also it is shown that the described technique in combination with the well-known (1+1)-Evolutionary Algorithm allows to decrease the upper bound on the runtime of this algorithm for arbitrary pseudo-Boolean functions.
