Comparing communities of optima with funnels in combinatorial fitness landscapes

Abstract

The existence of sub-optimal <i>funnels</i> in combinatorial fitness landscapes has been linked to search difficulty. The exact nature of these structures --- and how commonly they appear --- is not yet fully understood. Improving our understanding of funnels could help with designing effective diversification mechanisms for a 'smoothing' effect, making… (More)
