Fitness uniform deletion: A simple way to preserve diversity

Legg, Shane; Hutter, Marcus


A commonly experienced problem with population based optimisation methods is the gradual decline in population diversity that tends to occur over time. This can slow a system's progress or even halt it completely if the population converges on a local optimum from which it cannot escape. In this paper we present the Fitness Uniform Deletion Scheme (FUDS), a simple but somewhat unconventional approach to this problem. Under FUDS the deletion operation is modified to only delete those individuals...[Show more]
