Numerous studies have shown that advanced estimation of distribution algorithms (EDAs) often discover spurious (unnecessary) dependencies. Nonetheless, only little prior work exists that would study the effects of spurious dependencies on EDA performance. This paper examines the effects of spurious dependencies on the performance and scalability of EDAs(More)
Hybridization of global and local search algorithms is a well-established technique for enhancing the efficiency of search algorithms. Hybridizing estimation of distribution algorithms (EDAs) has been repeatedly shown to produce better performance than either the global or local search algorithm alone. The hierarchical Bayesian optimization algorithm (hBOA)(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the oncologic and cosmetic outcomes in women with multifocal breast cancers or T2 tumours with diameters larger than 3 cm situated in the upper outer quadrant who were treated with "V"-technique. METHODS From July 1999 till June 2003, 44 conserving surgeries with "V"-technique using a local rotational flap were performed. Localization(More)
