We propose a new niching method for Evolutionary Algorithms which is able to identify and track global and local optima in a multimodal search space. To prevent the loss of diversity we replace the global selection pressure within a single population by local selection of a multi-population strategy. The sub-populations representing species specialized on(More)
We propose the Clustering Based Niching (CBN) method for Evolutionary Algorithms (EA) to identify multiple global and local optima in a multimodal search space. The basic idea is to apply the biological concept of species in separate ecological niches to EA to preserve diversity. We model species using a multi-population approach, one population for each(More)
