Linear Combination of Distance Measures for Surrogate Models in Genetic Programming [article]

Martin Zaefferer, Jörg Stork, Oliver Flasch, Thomas Bartz-Beielstein
2018 arXiv   pre-print
In the context of genetic programming, surrogate modeling still poses a challenge, due to the complex genotype-phenotype relationships.  ...  We compare the measures and suggest to use their linear combination in a kernel. We test the resulting model in an optimization framework, using symbolic regression problem instances as a benchmark.  ...  In addition, we recorded the weights used for linear combination of the distances in each iteration, to evaluate the contribution of each distance function over time.  ...

Combining Genetic Programming and Particle Swarm Optimization to Simplify Rugged Landscapes Exploration [article]

Gloria Pietropolli, Giuliamaria Menara, Mauro Castelli
2022 arXiv   pre-print
To create such a surrogate model, we consider a linear genetic programming approach enhanced by a self-tuning fitness function.  ...  The proposed algorithm, called the GP-FST-PSO Surrogate Model, achieves satisfactory results in both the search for the global optimum and the production of a visual approximation of the original benchmark  ...  The goal of the proposed method, named the GP-FST-PSO Surrogate Model (which in turn stands for Genetic Programming Fuzzy Self-Tuning Particle Swarm Optimization Surrogate Model ), is the definition of  ...

A surrogate similarity measure for the mean-variance frontier optimisation problem under bound and cardinality constraints

Francisco Guijarro, Prodromos E. Tsinaslanidis
2019 Journal of the Operational Research Society  
A genetic algorithm is applied for the identification of the assets in the portfolio, whilst the asset weights in the portfolios are obtained by a quadratic programming model.  ...  This brings us to propose a surrogate similarity measure for the optimization of the constrained frontier, which differs from a previous proposal where no bound constraints were considered.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank two anonymous referees for their constructive comments and suggestions that substantially improved this article.  ...

Evolving optimal agendas for package deal negotiation

Shaheen Fatima, Ahmed Kattan
2011 Proceedings of the 13th annual conference on Genetic and evolutionary computation - GECCO '11  
The proposed system uses a Surrogate Model based on Radial Basis Function Networks (RBFNs) to speed up the evolution. The negotiation scenario is as follows.  ...  The agenda is important because the outcome of negotiation depends on it. Furthermore, a and b will, in general, get different utilities/profits from different agendas.  ...  These include Genetic Programming, Radial Basis Function Network Interpolation, and Gaussian Process Regression. Genetic programming is very powerful framework for approximating unknown functions.  ...
