I'm looking for a current and comprehensive overview (like a review article) of global optimization methods and their application in computational chemistry. Mostly I'm interested in geometry optimization. I am also grateful for single recommendations including
- literature (articles, textbooks)
- programs, capable to perform global optimizations
In this case it would be very nice, if you could assign the methods to certain areas like solid state, molecules on surfaces, isolated molecules, ensembles, etc. .
