The rigorous mathematical analysis of randomized search heuristics RSHs with respect to their expected runtime is a growing research area where many results have been obtained in recent years. Such heuristics are often applied to problems whose structure is not known or if there are not enough resources such as time, money, or knowledge to obtain good specific algorithms.
It is widely acknowledged that a solid mathematical foundation for such heuristics is needed. Most designers of RSHs, however, rather focused on mimicking processes in nature such as evolution rather than making the heuristics amenable to a mathematical analysis. This is different to the classical design of randomized algorithms which are developed with their theoretical analysis of runtime and proof of correctness in mind.
Despite these obstacles, research from the last about 15 years has shown how to apply the methods for the probabilistic analysis of randomized algorithms to RSHs. Mostly, the expected runtime of RSHs on selected problems is analzyed. Thereby, we understand why and when RSHs are efficient optimizers and, conversely, when they cannot be efficient.
The tutorial will give an overview on the analysis of RSHs for solving combinatorial optimization problems. Starting from the first toy examples such as the OneMax function, we approach more realistic problems and arrive at analysis of the runtime and approximation quality of RSHs even for NP-hard problems. The combinatorial optimization problems that we discuss include the maximum matching problem, the partition problem and, in particular, the minimum spanning tree problem as an example where Simulated Annealing beats the Metropolis algorithm in combinatorial optimization.
Important concepts of the analyses will be described as well. Since spring , he is an assistant professor at the Technical University of Denmark in Copenhagen. Carsten's main research interests are the theoretical aspects of randomized search heuristics, in particular evolutionary algorithms and ant colony optimization. The performances of evolutionary algorithms genetics algorithms, genetic programming, etc.
One concept to analyse the search space is the fitness landscapes in which the problem to optimize and the search algorithm are taken into account. The fitness landscape is a graph where the nodes are the potential solutions. The study of the fitness landscape consists in analysing this graph or a relevant partition of this graph according to the dynamic or search difficulty. This tutorial will give an overview, after an historical review of concept of fitness landscape, of the different ways to define fitness landscape in the field of evolutionary computation.
Following, the two mains geometries multimodal and neutral landscapes corresponding to two different partitions of the graph, meets in optimization problems and the dynamics of metaheuristics on these will be given. The relationship between problems difficulty and fitness landscapes measures autocorrelation, FDC, neutral degree, etc. Finally, the tutorial will conclude with a brief survey of open questions and the recent researchs on fitness landscapes.
Leonardo Vanneschi. I have proposed some new hardness indicators for GP and other measures to characterize fitness landscapes. I have studied how the island GP model enables to maintain a higher diversity in the whole GP system, thus producing better quality solutions for many applications. The techniques that I have studied are: 1 reducing the number of test cases to evaluate fitness by means of statistics, 2 using populations which dynamically adapt their size according to some events happening during the evolution, 3 coevolving GP terminal symbols by means of Genetic Algorithms GAs.
Using image sequences taken by a fixed camera, I have realized a system to recognize, classify and track the vehicles traveling along a street. The system has been embedded with a television camera system built by the Comerson Srl and it is presently in use in some city crossroads and motorways. This problem is very important to build new and performing chemical compounds and drugs. I have formalized it as an optimization problem and solved it in efficient way by means of Evolutionary Algorithms. Genetic Programming more info:.

Financial Evolutionary Computing: Description of Tutorial Financial investment and trading have been transformed through the application of mathematical analysis and computer technology. The research problems posed by financial computing are extremely challenging, taxing both mathematicians and computer scientists. While traditional computational techniques have yet to provide an efficient means for numerical evaluation of the complex equations produced by financial mathematicians, evolutionary computing has been remarkably effective and Financial Evolutionary Computing is currently a fertile area of research.

Computational Complexity and Evolutionary Computation: Description of Tutorial Evolutionary algorithms and other nature-inspired search heuristics like ant colony optimization have been shown to be very successful when dealing with real-world applications or problems from combinatorial optimization.
In recent years, analyses have shown that these general randomized search heuristics can be analyzed like "ordinary" randomized algorithms and that such analyses of the expected optimization time yield deeper insights in the functioning of evolutionary algorithms in the context of approximation and optimization. This is an important research area where a lot of interesting questions are still open. Thomas Jansen. A central topic in his work are theoretical aspects of randomized search heuristics in particular for problems from combinatorial optimization.
Experimental Research in EC: Description of Tutorial It is an open secret that the performance of algorithms depends on their parameterizations and of the parameterizations of the problem instances. However, these dependencies can be seen as means for understanding algorithm's behavior. Based on modern statistical techniques we demonstrate how to tune and understand algorithms.

Evolving Quantum Computer Algorithms: Description of Tutorial Computer science will be radically transformed if ongoing efforts to build large-scale quantum computers eventually succeed and if the properties of these computers meet optimistic expectations.
Nevertheless, computer scientists still lack a thorough understanding of the power of quantum computing, and it is not always clear how best to utilize the power that is understood. This dilemma exists because quantum algorithms are difficult to grasp and even more difficult to write. Despite large-scale international efforts, only a few important quantum algorithms are documented, leaving many essential questions about the potential of quantum algorithms unanswered.

Gustavo Olague. We have larger and larger data to analyze, process and transform into useful answers for the domain experts. Genetics-based machine learning GBML techniques are perfect candidates for this task, among others, due to the recent advances in representations, learning paradigms, and theoretical modeling. If evolutionary learning techniques aspire to be a relevant player in this context, they need to have the capacity of processing these vast amounts of data and they need to process this data within reasonable time.
Moreover, massive computation cycles are getting cheaper and cheaper every day, allowing researchers to have access to unprecedented parallelization degrees. Several topics are interlaced in these two requirements: 1 having the proper learning paradigms and knowledge representations, 2 understanding them and knowing when are they suitable for the problem at hand, 3 using efficiency enhancement techniques, and 4 transforming and visualizing the produced solutions to give back as much insight as possible to the domain experts are few of them.
