Abstract:

This paper proposes to combine three different Differential Evolution (DE) variants viz. DE/rand/1/bin, DE/best/1/bin and DE/rand-to-best/1/bin in an island based distributed Differential Evolution (dDE) framework. The resulting novel dDEs with different DE variants in each islands have been tested on 13 highdimensional benchmark problems (of dimensions 500 and 1000) to observe their performance efficacy as well as to investigate the potential of combining such complementary collection of search strategies in a distributed framework. Simulation results show that rand and rand-to-best strategy combination variants display superior performance over rand, best, rand-to-best as well as best, rand-to-best combination variants. The rand and best strategy combinations displayed the poor performance. The simulation studies indicate a definite potential of combining complementary collection of search characteristics in an island based distributed framework to realize highly co-operative, efficient and robust distributed Differential Evolution variants capable of handling a wide variety of optimizations tasks. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015.
