  • Multivariate Markov networks for fitness modelling in an estimation of distribution algorithm. 

    Brownlee, Alexander Edward Ian (The Robert Gordon University School of Computing, 2009-05)
    A well-known paradigm for optimisation is the evolutionary algorithm (EA). An EA maintains a population of possible solutions to a problem which converges on a global optimum using biologically-inspired selection and ...
