Population Training Heuristics
This work describes a new way of employing problem-specific heuristics to improve evolutionary algorithms: the Population Training Heuristic (PTH). The PTH employs heuristics in fitness definition, guiding the population to settle down in search areas where the individuals can not be improved by such heuristics. Some new theoretical improvements not present in early algorithms are now introduced. An application for pattern sequencing problems is examined with new improved computational results. The method is also compared against other approaches, using benchmark instances taken from the literature.
