  • Multiobjective Evolutionary Algorithms are increasingly used to solve optimization problems in software engineering. The choice of parameters for those algorithms usually follows the "default" settings, often accepted as "rule of thumb" or common wisdom. The fact is that each algorithms needs to be tuned for the problem at hand. Previous work [Arcuri and Fraser, 2011] has shown that variations in parameter values had large effects on the performance of the algorithms. This project seeks to… CONTINUE READING
