Mirrored sampling in evolution strategies with weighted recombination
This paper introduces mirrored sampling into evolution strategies (ESs) with weighted multi-recombination. Two further heuristics are introduced: pairwise selection selects at mos...

Aiming for a theoretically tractable CSA variant by means of empirical investigations
Evolution Strategies (ES) for black-box optimization of a function f : Rn → R are investigated. Namely, we consider the cumulative step-size adaptation (CSA) for the variance of...

A polymorphical mutation operator for evolution strategies
Since the advent of evolution strategies many attempts have been done to improve the mutation operator [7]. The first enhancement could be seen in the
