This chapter introduces a newly developed variant of Differential Evolution named ReDE—Revised Differential Evolution. This variant is created by changing the mutation strategy of traditional DE algorithm. ReDE uses two control parameters and two types of population in its mutation strategy. This strategy uses two weighted difference unlike traditional DE strategies. The new mutation strategy in ReDE gives progressive results in comparison to the traditional mutation strategies of DE.
