Rigorous analyses of simple diversity mechanisms

  title={Rigorous analyses of simple diversity mechanisms},
  author={Tobias Friedrich and Nils Hebbinghaus and Frank Neumann},
It is widely assumed and observed in experiments that the use of diversity mechanisms in evolutionary algorithms may have a great impact on its running time. Up to now there is no rigorous analysis pointing out the use of different mechanisms with respect to the runtime behavior. We consider evolutionary algorithms that differ from each other in the way they ensure diversity and point out situations where the right mechanism is crucial for the success of the algorithm. The algorithms considered… CONTINUE READING
