A Cooperative Coevolutionary Approach to Function Optimization

  title={A Cooperative Coevolutionary Approach to Function Optimization},
  author={Mitchell A. Potter and Kenneth A. De Jong},
A general model for the coevolution of cooperating species is presented. This model is instantiated and tested in the domain of function optimization, and compared with a traditional GA-based function optimizer. The results are encouraging in two respects. They suggest ways in which the performance of GA and other EA-based optimizers can be improved, and they suggest a new approach to evolving complex structures such as neural networks and rule sets.
