Linear and Combinatorial Optimizations by Estimation of Distribution Algorithms

  title={Linear and Combinatorial Optimizations by Estimation of Distribution Algorithms},
  author={Topon Kumar Paul and Hitoshi Iba},
Estimation of Distribution Algorithms (EDAs) is a new area of Evolutionary Computation. In EDAs there is neither crossover nor mutation operators. New population is generated by sampling the probability distribution, which is estimated from a database containing selected individuals of the previous generation. Different approaches have been proposed for the estimation of probability distribution. In this paper we provide a review of different EDA approaches and show how to apply UMDA with… CONTINUE READING
