Evolution strategies are a class of general optimisation algorithms which are applicable to functions that are multimodal, non-diierentiable, or even discontinuous. Although recombination operators have been introduced into evolution strategies, their primary search operator is still mutation. Classical evolution strategies rely on Gaussian mutations. A new mutation operator based on the Cauchy distribution is proposed in this paper. It is shown empirically that the new evolution strategy based… CONTINUE READING
