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 ...
Structural bias in population-based algorithms
Abstract Challenging optimisation problems are abundant in all areas of science and industry. Since the 1950s, scientists have responded to this by developing ever-diversifying families of ‘black box’ optimisation algorithms. ...
