Title:1-D Parabolic Search Mutation
Authors: Craig Robertson ; Robert Fisher
Date: 2002
Publication Title:Proc. 7th On-line World Conference on Soft Computing (WSC7)
Publication Type:Conference Paper
This document describes a new mutation operator for evolutionary algorithms based on a 1-dimensional optimisation strategy. This provides a directed, rather than random, mutation which can increase the speed of convergence when approaching a minimum. We detail typical comparative results of unimodal and polymodal optimisations with and without the operator.
