Abstract

Evolutionary algorithms are general, randomized search heuristics that are influenced by many parameters. Though evolutionary algorithms are assumed to be robust, it is well-known that choosing the parameters appropriately is crucial for success and efficiency of the search. It has been shown in many experiments, that non-static parameter settings can be by far superior to static ones but theoretical verifications are hard to find. We investigate a very simple evolutionary algorithm ...
