## Abstract

The class of non overlapping additively decomposed functions subject to
unitation constraints are of interest for studying the behavior of
Factorized Distribution Algorithms (FDAs) in constrained problems. In this
paper we define a theoretical framework for the analysis of Constraint
FDAs (CFDAs). This framework is used to investigate the factors that could
explain the behavior of FDAs for the class of functions under
consideration. Empirical evidence is shown to demonstrate our assertions.
