In this paper, we propose basic and improved algorithms based on polynomial B-spline form for constrained global optimization of multivariate polynomial functions. The proposed algorithms are based on a branch-and-bound framework. In improved algorithm we introduce several new ingredients, such as B-spline box consistency and B-spline hull consistency algorithm to prune the search regions and make the search more efficient. The performance of the basic and improved algorithm is tested and compared on set of test problems. The results of the tests show the superiority of the improved algorithm over the basic algorithm in terms of the chosen performance metrics for 7 out-off 11 test problems. We compare optimal value of global minimum obtained using the proposed algorithms with CENSO, GloptiPoly and several state-of-the-art NLP solvers, on set of 11 test problems. The results of the tests show the superiority of the proposed algorithm and CENSO solver (open source solver for global optimization of B-spline constrained problem) in that it always captures the global minimum to the user-specified accuracy.
