Working Group Report: Bridging the Gap Between Experiments and Theory Using Feature-Based Run-Time Analysis; Theory of Evolutionary Algorithms (Dagstuhl Seminar 15211)
Neumann F, Trautmann H
This report documents the talks and discussions at the Dagstuhl Seminar 15211 “Theory of Evolutionary Algorithms”. This seminar, now in its 8th edition, is the main meeting point of the highly active theory of randomized search heuristics subcommunities in Australia, Asia, North America, and Europe. Topics intensively discussed include rigorous runtime analysis and computational complexity theory for randomised search heuristics, information geometry of randomised search, and synergies between the theory of evolutionary algorithms and theories of natural evolution.
