This research deals with the initial investigations on the concept of a multi-chaos-driven evolutionary algorithm Differential Evolution (DE). This paper is aimed at the embedding and alternating of set of two discrete dissipative chaotic systems in the form of chaos pseudo random number generator for DE. Repeated simulations were performed on the selected test function in higher dimensions. Finally, the obtained results are compared with canonical DE.
