Precise Runtime Analysis for Plateaus

4 Jun 2018Denis AntipovBenjamin Doerr

To gain a better theoretical understanding of how evolutionary algorithms cope with plateaus of constant fitness, we analyze how the $(1 + 1)$ EA optimizes the $n$-dimensional $Plateau_k$ function. This function has a plateau of second-best fitness in a radius of $k$ around the optimum... (read more)
