Looking Under the EA Hood with Price's Equation

  title={Looking Under the EA Hood with Price's Equation},
  author={Jeffrey K. Bassett and Mitchell A. Potter and Kenneth A. De Jong},
In this paper we show how tools based on extensions of Price’s equation allow us to look inside production-level EAs to see how s election, representation, and reproductive operators interact with each othe r, and how these interactions affect EA performance. With such tools it is possibl e to understand at a deeper level how existing EAs work as well as provide support for making better design decisions involving new EC applications.
