Mixed Techniques in Evolutionary Computing

Professor Dana Simian
Faculty of Sciences
University Lucian Blaga of Sibiu

Abstract: Our aim is to analyze and compare how different evolutionary computing techniques can be combined to improve the performances in complex optimization problems. We focus on three types of evolutionary techniques: genetic algorithms, wasp’s behavior based algorithms and machine learning.
