The discovery of low-energy stable and meta-stable molecular structures remains an important and unsolved problem in search and optimization. In this paper, we contribute two stochastic algorithms, the archiving molecular memetic algorithm (AMMA) and the archiving basin hopping algorithm (ABHA) for sampling low-energy isomers on the landscapes of pure water clusters (H2O)n. We applied our methods...
