The paper investigates the optimization of additively decomposable functions (ADF) by a new evolutionary algorithm called Factorized Distribution Algorithm (FDA). FDA is based on a factorization of the distribution to generate search points. First separable ADFs are considered. These are mapped to generalized linear functions with metavariables deened for multiple alleles. The mapping transforms FDA into an Univariate Marginal Frequency Algorithm (UMDA). For UMDA the exact equation for the… CONTINUE READING
