An initial study of surrogate-assisted evolutionary algorithms used to design verticalaxis wind turbines wherein candidate prototypes are evaluated under fan generated wind conditions after being physically instantiated by a 3D printer has recently been presented. Unlike other approaches, such as...
Inspirations from nature have fundamentally contributed to the development of evolutionary computation (EC). This paper, by learning from the natural ripple-spreading phenomenon, proposes a novel ripple-spreading algorithm (RSA) for the path optimization problem (POP). In nature, a ripple spreads...
The Parameter-less Population Pyramid (P3) is a recently introduced method for performing evolutionary optimization without requiring any user specified parameters. P3's primary innovation is to replace the generational model with a pyramid of multiple populations that are iteratively created and...
