A prediction mechanism for Memetic Algorithm is presented in this paper. The Predictive Memetic Algorithm (PMA) uses a nonlinear regression method to estimate the parameters used by the algorithm to obtain good solutions in a dynamic and stochastic environment. The algorithm is applied to nonlinear data sets and performance is compared with genetic and simulated annealing algorithms. When compared with the existing methods, the proposed method generates a relatively small error difference after… CONTINUE READING
