No Free Lunch Theorem and Bayesian probability theory: two sides of the same coin. Some implications for black-box optimization and metaheuristics

Challenging optimization problems, which elude acceptable solution via conventional calculus methods, arise commonly in different areas of industrial design and practice. Hard optimization problems are those who manifest the following behavior: a) high number of independent input variables; b) very complex or irregular multi-modal fitness; c) computational expensive fitness evaluation...
