Cluster-Based Population Initialization for differential evolution frameworks
Abstract This article proposes a procedure to perform an intelligent initialization for population-based algorithms. The proposed pre-processing procedure, namely Cluster-Based Population Initialization (CBPI) consists of ...
Three variants of three Stage Optimal Memetic Exploration for handling non-separable fitness landscapes
Three Stage Optimal Memetic Exploration (3SOME) is a recently proposed algorithmic framework which sequentially perturbs a single solution by means of three operators. Although 3SOME proved to be extremely successful at ...
Meta-Lamarckian learning in three stage optimal memetic exploration
(IEEE Xplore, 2012-09)
Three Stage Optimal Memetic Exploration (3SOME) is a single-solution optimization algorithm where the coordinated action of three distinct operators progressively perturb the solution in order to progress towards the ...
A Separability Prototype for Automatic Memes with Adaptive Operator Selection
One of the main challenges in algorithmics in general, and in Memetic Computing, in particular, is the automatic design of search algorithms. A recent advance in this direction (in terms of continuous problems) is the ...
The Importance of Being Structured: a Comparative Study on Multi Stage Memetic Approaches
Memetic Computing (MC) is a discipline which studies optimization algorithms and sees them as structures of operators, the memes. Although the choice of memes is crucial for an effective algorithmic design, special attention ...
A Differential Evolution Framework with Ensemble of Parameters and Strategies and Pool of Local Search Algorithms
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2014-11)
The ensemble structure is a computational intelligence supervised strategy consisting of a pool of multiple operators that compete among each other for being selected, and an adaptation mechanism that tends to reward the ...
