A New Framework for the Valuation of Algorithms for Black-Box Optimization

  title={A New Framework for the Valuation of Algorithms for Black-Box Optimization},
  author={Stefan Droste and Thomas Jansen and Karsten Tinnefeld and Ingo Wegener},
Black-box optimization algorithms cannot use the specific parameters of the problem instance, i.e., of the fitness function f . Their run time is measured as the number of f -evaluations. This implies that the usual algorithmic complexity of a problem cannot be used in the black-box scenario. Therefore, a new framework for the valuation of algorithms for black-box optimization is presented allowing the notion of the black-box complexity of a problem. For several problems upper and lower bounds… CONTINUE READING
