In this paper we derive theoretical expressions to compute expected population variance for Differential Evolution (DE) variants – DE/best/1/bin, DE/rand/2/bin and DE/best/2/bin by directly extending Zaharie’s work on DE/rand/1/bin. The study includes comparing the theoretical and empirical evolution of population variance of three DE variants. This work provides insight about the explorative power of the variants and explains their behavior.
