Survey of EC in Dynamic Environments
The domain of EC in dynamic environments can be broken up into four main areas. This chapter is therefore divided up into four sections so as to comprehensively detail the prior art in the field as it stands. Section 3.2 focuses on the definition of dynamic environments. It examines the different types of changes that can occur as well as the features of each type of change that differentiate it from the other. Section 3.3 identifies the various approaches researchers have adopted in attempting to tune the EC paradigm to dynamic environments. Following from this, Section 3.4 describes the difficulties encountered when trying to measure the performance of an evolutionary algorithm placed in a dynamic environment. It also covers the types of metrics adopted to date. Section 3.5 looks at the different benchmark problems explored in the literature. The chapter then continues with a review of the findings of this survey in Section 3.6.
