  abstract =     "Evolutionary computations are very effective at
                 performing global search (in probability), however, the
                 speed of convergence could be slow. This paper presents
                 an evolutionary programming algorithm combined with
                 macro-mutation (MM), local linear bisection search
                 (LBS) and crossover operators for global optimisation.
                 The MM operator is designed to explore the whole search
                 space and the LBS operator to exploit the neighbourhood
                 of the solution. Simulated annealing is adopted to
                 prevent premature convergence. The performance of the
                 proposed algorithm is assessed by numerical experiments
                 on 12 benchmark problems. Combined with MM, the
                 effectiveness of various local search operators is also
