Variable-size Memory Evolutionary Algorithm: Studies on Replacing Strategies and Diversity in Dynamic Environments

Authors

Abstract

We investigate some improvements to a memory-based evolutionary algorithm already studied with success in dynamic optimization problems. Two new replacing strategies to incorporate in the algorithm are proposed and a comparative study with previous approaches is made. The results show that the studied mechanisms powerfully improve the efficiency and the adaptability of the evolutionary algorithm.
