Part 1 started with a brief introduction into the field of optimization in dynamic environments. Since being able to accurately describe the dynamics of a problem is a prerequisite to understanding how an approach reacts to different dynamics and to determine which approaches might be most suitable for a certain environment, in the following section a number of parameters have been identified that might be used to characterize dynamic environments, namely the change frequency, severity of change, predictability of change, cycle length and accuracy.
