Cooperative Coevolution and Univariate Estimation of Distribution Algorithms

Foundations of Genetic Algorithms (2009)

Abstract

In this paper, we discuss a curious relationship between Cooperative Coevolutionary Algorithms (CCEAs) and Univariate EDAs. Inspired by the theory of CCEAs, we also present a new EDA with theoretical convergence guarantees, and some preliminary experimental results in comparison with existing Univariate EDAs.
