The challenges of solving problems naturally represented as permutations by Estimation of Distribution Algorithms (EDAs) have been a recent focus of interest in the evolutionary computation community. One of the most common alternative representations for permutation based problems is the Random Key (RK), which enables the use of continuous approaches for this problem domain. However, the use of RK in EDAs have not produced competitive results to date and more recent research on permutation based EDAs have focused on creating superior algorithms with specially adapted representations. In this paper, we present RK-EDA; a novel RK based EDA that uses a cooling scheme to balance the exploration and exploitation of a search space by controlling the variance in its probabilistic model. Unlike the general performance of RK based EDAs, RK-EDA is actually competitive with the best EDAs on common permutation test problems: Flow Shop Scheduling, Linear Ordering, Quadratic Assignment, and Travelling Salesman Problems.
