I have a time-dependent (dynamic) optimization problem: $$ f_t : [0;1]^2 \mapsto \mathbb{R}^+; t \in [1, \dots, n] $$ $f_t$ is to be maximized. That is for each $t$ I would like to find a relatively … exponentially. The problem is that at each time I can perform only a handful (5-10) of evaluations of $f_t$. I am absolutely new to dynamic optimization and therefore I am looking for some simple …

In 1962, you could win a prize of \$ 10 000 (about \$ 80 000 in today's money) if you found the solution to an Euclidean travelling salesman problem defined on 33 cities. http://www.math.uwaterloo.ca …

optimization problems. I also ruled out 3. since evolutionary strategies maintain an explicit random distribution during the optimization process. That leaves only genetic algorithms. But when you say …

Many real world optimization tasks (especially black box optimization) have objective functions, which are quite expensive to evaluate. For example to find the optimal shape of an airplane wing, a … computer model of the wing needs to be constructed and then a large physical simulation needs to be executed, usually taking many hours. Are there some real-world optimization tasks that have …
