A Multipopulation Differential Evolution Algorithm for Multimodal Optimization

  title={A Multipopulation Differential Evolution Algorithm for Multimodal Optimization},
  author={Daniela Zaharie},
The aim of this work is to analyze the ability of a multipopulation differential evolution to locate all optima of a multimodal function. The exploration is assured by a controlled initialization of the subpopulations while a particular differential evolution algorithm assures the exploitation. To avoid the necessity of specifying a niche radius a multi-resolution approach is proposed. All located optima are stored in an archive that plays also the role of a communication buffer between… CONTINUE READING
