A local linear embedding module for evolutionary computation optimization
A Local Linear Embedding (LLE) module enhances the performance of two Evolutionary Computation (EC) algorithms employed as search tools in global optimization problems. The LLE employs the stochastic sampling of the data space inherent in Evolutionary Computation in order to reconstruct an approximate mapping from the data space back into the parameter space. This allows to map the target data vector directly into the parameter space in order to obtain a rough estimate of the global optimum, which is then added to the EC generation. This process is iterated and considerably improves the EC convergence. Thirteen standard test functions and two real-world optimization problems serve to benchmark the performance of the method. In most of our tests, optimization aided by the LLE mapping outperforms standard implementations of a genetic algorithm and a particle swarm optimization. The number and ranges of functions we tested suggest that the proposed algorithm can be considered as a valid ...
