We concentrate on evolutionary algorithms used as optimization tools. The first important question to ask about a general optimization algorithm is whether(More)
Ironically, the first lecture of the summer lecture series 2002 on evolutionary computation theory does not deal with evolutionary computation. The topic is a famous theorem known as No Free Lunch Theorem. It is concerned with optimization (or even more generally, with search) and tries to formally capture the situation of a general (randomized) search(More)
