In this chapter we focus on the design of real–valued EDAs for the task of numerical optimization. Here, both the problem variables as well as their encoding are real values. Concordantly, the type of probability distribution to be used for estimation and sampling in the EDA is continuous. In this chapter we indicate the main challenges in this area. Furthermore, we review the existing literature to indicate the current EDA practice for real–valued numerical optimization. Based on observations… CONTINUE READING
