Advanced Fitness Landscape Analysis and the Performance of Memetic Algorithms

  title={Advanced Fitness Landscape Analysis and the Performance of Memetic Algorithms},
  author={Peter Merz},
  journal={Evolutionary Computation},
Memetic algorithms (MAs) have demonstrated very effective in combinatorial optimization. This paper offers explanations as to why this is so by investigating the performance of MAs in terms of efficiency and effectiveness. A special class of MAs is used to discuss efficiency and effectiveness for local search and evolutionary meta-search. It is shown that the efficiency of MAs can be increased drastically with the use of domain knowledge. However, effectiveness highly depends on the structure… CONTINUE READING
