Structural bias in population-based algorithms

Anna V. Kononova, David W. Corne, Philippe De Wilde, Vsevolod Shneer, Fabio Caraffini
2015 Information Sciences  
For such algorithms to be successful, at least three properties are required: (i) an effective informed sampling strategy, that guides the generation of new candidates on the basis of the fitnesses and  ...  This reveals how structural bias can arise and manifest as non-uniform clustering of the population over time.  ...  We apply these three tests to each of two kinds of long sequences, one coming from a true random generator and another from a pseudorandom generator used to produce results in Section 3.  ...

Study on the Effects of Pseudorandom Generation Quality on the Performance of Differential Evolution [chapter]

Ville Tirronen, Sami Äyrämö, Matthieu Weber
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Experiences in the field of Monte Carlo methods indicate that the quality of a random number generator is exceedingly significant for obtaining good results.  ...  This result has not been demonstrated in the field of evolutionary optimization, and many practitioners of the field assume that the choice of the generator is superfluous and fail to document this aspect  ...  Considering the number of pseudorandom numbers generated in a single run, or worse, a batch of runs by DE, this is quite significant amount.  ...
