Estimating the Ratios of the Stationary Distribution Values for Markov Chains Modeling Evolutionary Algorithms

Abstract

The evolutionary algorithm stochastic process is well-known to be Markovian. These have been under investigation in much of the theoretical evolutionary computing research. When the mutation rate is positive, the Markov chain modeling of an evolutionary algorithm is irreducible and, therefore, has a unique stationary distribution. Rather little is known… (More)
