Hybrid approach

In the hybrid approach, algorithms are combined together to achieve better results. In particular, the K-L algorithm, which is a ``steepest decent'' type optimization algorithm with a limited capability for getting out of a local minima, has been combined with other more ``global'' algorithms and with the multilevel approach [42,79,35,36].
