Experimentation in Evolutionary Computation

  • Mike Preuss
Part of the Natural Computing Series book series (NCS)


In which we reflect on the current status of experimentation in evolutionary computation (Sect. 2.1) and beyond (Sect. 2.2). We then argue in favor of a methodology in Sect. 2.3, highlighting the need for a structured approach with well-defined aims, parameter settings, designs, and measures. Finally, Sect. 2.4 deals with the positive aspect of parameters: the possibility of adapting algorithms to concrete needs via new, more suitable parameter settings.
