Estimation-of-distribution algorithm equipped with Cauchy distribution (Cauchy EDA) is compared with Rosenbrock's local search algorithm. Both algorithms were already presented at the 2009 black-box optimization benchmarking workshop where Cauchy EDA usually ranked better than Rosenbrock's algorithm. This paper compares them in more detail and adds to the understanding of their key differences.
