  journal={IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation},
Differential evolution is a very popular optimization algorithm and considerable research has been devoted to the development of efficient search operators. Motivated by the different manner in which various search operators behave, we propose a novel framework based on the proximity characteristics among the individual solutions as they evolve. Our… CONTINUE READING
