Daniel Ashlock,
Mathematics and Statistics
University of Guelph
Joint Work with Justin Schonfeld
Computer Science and Engineering
University of Nevada, Reno
Agenda
Evolutionary computation
The issue of representation
Some cute properties of the fractal representation
Testing, testing ...
Next steps
Evolutionary Computation
Imagine that you want to maximize a function f : Rn R.
Generate a population of points in Rn
Repeat
Select a set of points from the population
Copy the two points with largest f(x) over the two smallest
Exchange a few coordinates between the copies
