Evolutionary algorithms and the Vertex Cover problem

  journal={2007 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation},
Experimental results have suggested that evolutionary algorithms may produce higher quality solutions for instances of vertex cover than a very well known approximation algorithm for this NP-complete problem. A theoretical analysis of the expected runtime of the (1+1)-EA on a well studied instance class confirms such a conjecture for the considered class. Furthermore, a class for which the (1+1)-EA takes exponential optimization time is examined. Nevertheless, given polynomial time, the… CONTINUE READING
