  author={Marc Toussaint},
  journal={Theor. Comput. Sci.},
The choice of representation crucially determines the capability of search processes to find complex solutions in which many variables interact. The question is how good representations can be found and how they can be adapted online to account for what can be learned about the structure of the problem from previous samples. We address these questions in a scenario that we term indirect Estimationof-Distribution: We consider a decorrelated search distribution (mutational variability) on a… CONTINUE READING
