In this paper we present an empirical performance analysis of fourteen variants of Differential Evolution (DE) on a set of unconstrained global optimization problems. The island based distributed differential evolution counterparts of the above said 14 variants have been implemented with mesh and ring migration topologies and their superior performance over the serial implementation has been demonstrated. The competitive performance of ring topology based distributed differential evolution variants on the chosen problem has also been demonstrated. Six different migration policies are experimented for ring topology, and their performances are reported. © 2010 Springer-Verlag.
