# Markov Chain Analysis of Evolution Strategies on a Linear Constraint Optimization Problem

11 Apr 2014Alexandre ChotardAnne AugerNikolaus Hansen

This paper analyses a $(1,\lambda)$-Evolution Strategy, a randomised comparison-based adaptive search algorithm, on a simple constraint optimisation problem. The algorithm uses resampling to handle the constraint and optimizes a linear function with a linear constraint... (read more)
