Abstract

One approach to the a posteriori classification of problem/algorithm combinations in the context of evolutionary algorithms (EAs), is to record and analyse a number of summary statistics of the evolution of the population. This paper discusses a necessary normalization of the population mean curve, i.e., the curve of the average fitness of the individuals in the population, plotted per generation. The normalization is based on a transformation w.r.t. the density of states (DoS) of the problem, the distribution ...
