Differential Evolution (DE) is an evolutionary algorithm. DE has been successfully applied to optimization problems including non-linear, non-differentiable, non-convex and multimodal functions. There are several mutation strategies such as the best and the rand strategy in DE. It is known that the best strategy is suitable for unimodal problems and the rand strategy is suitable for multimodal problems. However, the landscape of a problem to be optimized is often unknown and the landscape is… CONTINUE READING
