On the Effectiveness of Simple Success-Based Parameter Selection Mechanisms for Two Classical Discrete Black-Box Optimization Benchmark Problems

4 Mar 2018 Carola Doerr Markus Wagner

Despite significant empirical and theoretically supported evidence that non-static parameter choices can be strongly beneficial in evolutionary computation, the question how to best adjust parameter values plays only a marginal role in contemporary research on discrete black-box optimization. This has led to the unsatisfactory situation in which feedback-free parameter selection rules such as the cooling schedule of Simulated Annealing are predominant in state-of-the-art heuristics, while, at the same time, we understand very well that such time-dependent selection rules can only perform worse than adjustment rules that do take into account the evolution of the optimization process...
