• Dynastic Potential Crossover Operator 

      Chicano, Francisco; Ochoa, Gabriela; Whitley, L. Darrell; Tinós, Renato (2021-12)
      An optimal recombination operator for two parent solutions provides the best solution among those that take the value for each variable from one of the parents (gene transmission property). If the solutions are bit strings, ...
    • Efficient Hill Climber for Constrained Pseudo-Boolean Optimization Problems 

      Chicano, Francisco; Whitley, L. Darrell; Tinós, Renato (2016-09-09)
      Efficient hill climbers have been recently proposed for single- and multi-objective pseudo-Boolean optimization problems. For $k$-bounded pseudo-Boolean functions where each variable appears in at most a constant number ...
    • Efficient Hill Climber for Multi-Objective Pseudo-Boolean Optimization 

      Chicano, Francisco; Whitley, L. Darrell; Tinós, Renato (2016-04-06)
      Local search algorithms and iterated local search algorithms are a basic technique. Local search can be a stand-alone search method, but it can also be hybridized with evolutionary algorithms. Recently, it has been shown ...
    • Enhancing partition crossover with articulation points analysis 

      Chicano, Francisco; Ochoa, Gabriela; Whitley, L. Darrell; Tinós, Renato (2018-07-25)
      Partition Crossover is a recombination operator for pseudo-Boolean optimization with the ability to explore an exponential number of solutions in linear or square time. It decomposes the objective function as a sum of ...
    • Quasi-Optimal Recombination Operator 

      Chicano, Francisco; Ochoa, Gabriela; Whitley, L. Darrell; Tinós, Renato (2019-07-22)
      The output of an optimal recombination operator for two parent solutions is a solution with the best possible value for the objective function among all the solutions fulfilling the gene transmission property: the value ...
