A novel technique, called the neighbor state transition method, is introduced for solving a class of optimization problems often found in VLSI designs. The method utilizes the powerful means that have been developed for optimization in continuous space in order to solve optimization problems confined to discrete points. For two NP-hard problems, gate array placement and graph partitioning, the method produces an asymptotically global optimal solution in polynomial time
