Optimization problems are of fundamental practical importance and can be found in almost every aspect of human endeavour. Yet remarkably, we have a very limited understanding of the nature of optimization problems and subsequently of how, why and when different algorithms perform well or poorly. The notion of a problem landscape captures the relationship between the objective function and the problem variables. It is clear that the structure of this landscape is vital in understanding… CONTINUE READING
