In recent years a new evolutionary algorithm for optimization in continuos spaces called Differential Evolution (DE) has developed. DE turns out to need only few evaluation steps to minimize a function. This makes it an interesting candidate for problem domains with high computational costs as for instance in the automatic generation of programs. In this paper a DE-based tree discovering algorithm called Tree based Differential Evolution (TreeDE) is presented. TreeDE maps full trees to vectors… CONTINUE READING
