Factorized Distribution Algorithms: selection without selected population

“Factorized Distribution Algorithms: selection without selected population” by Roberto Santana, Institute of Cybernetics. Mathematics and Physics technical report ICIMAF 2003-240, (Havana, Cuba), Sep. 2003.


In this paper we investigate the problem of an efficient implementation of the selection step in Factorized Distribution Algorithms. We demonstrate that while in Genetic Algorithms the selection operator needs the creation of a selected population, in Factorized Distribution Algorithms this is not always the case.
