The filled function method is an approach to find global minima of multidimensional multimodal functions. This paper proposes a class of new filled functions that are continuously differentiable and do not include exponential terms. The performance of the new function in numerical experiments for a large set of testing functions up to 40 dimensions is quite satisfactory.
