A generalized approach to construct benchmark problems for dynamic optimization.
There has been a growing interest in studying evolutionary algorithms in dynamic environments in recent years due to its importance in real applications. However, different dynamic test problems have been used to test and compare the performance of algorithms. This paper proposes a generalized dynamic benchmark generator (GDBG) that can be instantiated into the binary space, real space and combinatorial space. This generator can present a set of different properties to test algorithms by tuning some control parameters. Some experiments are carried out on the real space to study the performance of the generator.
