A Review of Estimation of Distribution Algorithms and Markov Networks

A Review of Estimation of Distribution Algorithms and Markov Networks” by S. Shakya and R. Santana. In Markov Networks in Evolutionary Computation, (S. Shakya and R. Santana, eds.), 2012, pp. 21-37.

Abstract

This chapter reviews some of the popular EDAs based on Markov Networks. It starts by giving introduction to general EDAs and describes the motivation behind their emergence. It then categorises EDAs according to the type of probabilistic models they use (directed model based, undirected model based and common model based) and briefly lists some of the popular EDAs in each categories. It then further focuses on undirected model based EDAs, describes their general workflow and the history, and briefly reviews some of the popular EDAs based on undirected models. It also outlines some of the current research work in this area.
