    Evolutionary algorithms can be applied to a variety of constrained network communication problems with centric type models. This paper shows that with real-world complex network communication problems of this type, sophisticated statistical search is required. This situation occurs due to the fact that these optimization problems are at least NP-complete. In order to appreciate the formal modeling... View full abstract»

    One promising approach to general-purpose artificial intelligence is neuroevolution, which has worked well on a number of problems from resource optimization to robot control. However, state-of-the-art neuroevolution algorithms like neuroevolution of augmenting topologies (NEAT) have surprising difficulty on problems that are fractured, i.e., where the desired actions change abruptly and frequentl...

    A genetic algorithm that utilizes process algebra for coding of solution chromosomes and for defining evolutionary based operators is presented. The algorithm is applicable to mission planning and optimization problems. As an example the high level mission planning for a cooperative group of uninhabited aerial vehicles is investigated. The mission planning problem is cast as an assignment problem,... View full abstract»

  • Using the Averaged Hausdorff Distance as a Performance Measure in Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimization

    The Hausdorff distance dH is a widely used tool to measure the distance between different objects in several research fields. Possible reasons for this might be that it is a natural extension of the well-known and intuitive distance between points and/or the fact that dH defines in certain cases a metric in the mathematical sense. In evolutionary multiobjective optimization (... View full abstract»

    We use a new measure of creativity as a guide in an interactive evolutionary art task and tie the results to natural language usage of the term “creative.” Following previous work, we explore a tractable definition of creativity, one emphasizing the novelty of systems, and its addition to an interactive application. We next introduce a generative ecosystemic art system, EvoEco, an ag... View full abstract»

    Mechanisms promoting the evolution of cooperation in two players and two strategies (22) evolutionary games have been investigated in great detail over the past decades. Understanding the effects of repeated interactions in multiplayer spatial games, however, is a formidable challenge. In this paper, we present a multiplayer evolutionary game model in which agents play iterative games in spatial p... View full abstract»

  • A General Framework of Multipopulation Methods With Clustering in Undetectable Dynamic Environments

    To solve dynamic optimization problems, multiple population methods are used to enhance the population diversity for an algorithm with the aim of maintaining multiple populations in different subareas in the fitness landscape. Many experimental studies have shown that locating and tracking multiple relatively good optima rather than a single global optimum is an effective idea in dynamic environme... View full abstract»

  • On the Design of Constraint Covariance Matrix Self-Adaptation Evolution Strategies Including a Cardinality Constraint

    This paper describes the algorithm's engineering of a covariance matrix self-adaptation evolution strategy (CMSA-ES) for solving a mixed linear/nonlinear constrained optimization problem arising in portfolio optimization. While the feasible solution space is defined by the (probabilistic) simplex, the nonlinearity comes in by a cardinality constraint bounding the number of linear inequalities viol...

Aims & Scope

IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation publishes archival quality original papers in evolutionary computation and related areas including nature-inspired algorithms, population-based methods, and optimization where selection and variation are integral, and hybrid systems where these paradigms are combined. Purely theoretical papers are considered as are application papers that provide general insights into these areas of computation.
