Three main streams of Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs), i.e. probabilistic optimization algorithms based on the model of natural evolution, are compared with each other in this article: Evolution Strategies (ESs), Evolutionary Programming (EP), and Genetic Algorithms (GAs). The comparison is performed with respect to certain characteristic components of EAs,(More)
| Evolutionary computation has started to receive signiicant attention during the last decade, although the origins can be traced back to the late 1950s. This article surveys the history as well as the current state of this rapidly growing eld. We describe the purpose, the general structure and the working principles of diierent approaches , including(More)
The optimization of a single bit string by means of iterated mutation and selection of the best a Genetic Algorithm is dis cussed with respect to three simple tness functions The counting ones problem a standard binary encoded integer and a Gray coded integer optimization problem A mu tation rate schedule that is optimal with re spect to the success(More)
|Due to its independence of the actual search space and its impact on the exploration-exploitation tradeoo, selection is an important operator in any kind of Evolutionary Algorithm. In this paper, all important selection operators are discussed and quantitatively compared with respect to their selective pressure. The comparison clariies that only a few(More)
A genetic algorithm, GENEsYs, is applied to an NP-complete<lb>problem, the 0/1 multiple knapsack problem. The partition-<lb>ing of the search space resulting from this highly constrained<lb>problem may include substantially large infeasible regions.<lb>Our implementation allows for the breeding and participa-<lb>tion of infeasible strings in the population.(More)
This paper presents various Metamodel–Assisted Evolution Strategies which reduce the computational cost of optimisation problems involving time–consuming function evaluations. The metamodel is built using previously evaluated solutions in the search space and utilized to predict the fitness of new candidate solutions. In addition to previous works by the(More)
