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 ...
Rotation Invariance and Rotated Problems: An Experimental Study on Differential Evolution
This paper presents an experimental study on the efficacy of a rotation-invariant Differential Evolution (based on current-to-rand mutation) on a benchmark of test problems in its non-rotated and rotated version. Numerical ...
Algorithm Design Issues in Adaptive Differential Evolution: Review and taxonomy
The performance of most metaheuristic algorithms depends on parameters whose settings essentially serve as a key function in determining the quality of the solution and the efficiency of the search. A trend that has emerged ...
Compact differential evolution light: high performance despite limited memory requirement and modest computational overhead
(Springer US, 2012-09-01)
Compact algorithms are Estimation of Distribution Algorithms which mimic the behavior of population-based algorithms by means of a probabilistic representation of the population of candidate solutions. These algorithms ...
A Study on Rotation Invariance in Differential Evolution
Epistasis is the correlation between the variables of a function and is a challenge often posed by real-world optimisation problems. Synthetic benchmark problems simulate a highly epistatic problem by performing a so-called ...
