Summary and Outlook

  • Jürgen Branke
Part of the Genetic Algorithms and Evolutionary Computation book series (GENA, volume 3)


Most common heuristics are restricted to static optimization problems, i.e. problems that are completely known to the optimization algorithm from the beginning. However, many real-world optimization problems are stochastic and change over time. Therefore, powerful heuristics are needed that are not only capable of finding good solutions to a single static problem, but that account for the dynamics and the uncertainty present in real world problems.
