  author={James M. Whitacre and Q. Tuan Pham and Ruhul A. Sarker},
In this paper, the issue of adapting probabilities for Evolutionary Algorithm (EA) search operators is revisited. A framework is devised for distinguishing between measurements of performance and the interpretation of those measurements for purposes of adaptation. Several examples of measurements and statistical interpretations are provided. Probability value adaptation is tested using an EA with 10 search operators against 10 test problems with results indicating that both the type of… CONTINUE READING
