The Alienor technique for global optimisation is described. The method is deterministic and uses the approximate properties of Archimedes' spirals, reducing n variables to a single one. It is shown that Monte Carlo methods are less efficient than Alienor, they need more computing time and convergence is not absolutely guaranteed. The application of the Alienor technique to many concrete problems is discussed.
