Memetic Algorithms Beat Evolutionary Algorithms on the Class of Hurdle Problems

17 Apr 2018Phan Trung Hai NguyenDirk Sudholt

Memetic algorithms are popular hybrid search heuristics that integrate local search into the search process of an evolutionary algorithm in order to combine the advantages of rapid exploitation and global optimisation. However, these algorithms are not well understood and the field is lacking a solid theoretical foundation that explains when and why memetic algorithms are effective... (read more)
