A Dynamical Systems Analysis of Collaboration Methods in Cooperative Co-evolution

  title={A Dynamical Systems Analysis of Collaboration Methods in Cooperative Co-evolution},
  author={Elena Popovici and Kenneth A. De Jong},
Cooperative co-evolution is often used to solve difficult op timization problems by means of problem decomposition. In order to do so efficiently, one must have a good understanding of co-evolution’s dynamical behavior. To build such understanding, we have constructed a methodology for analyzing co-evolution based on dynamical systems theory. In this paper we show how it can be applied to investigate the effects that collaboration methods have on performance and to identify a problem property… CONTINUE READING
