Multivariate Markov networks for fitness modelling in an estimation of distribution algorithm. (2009)
Thesis
BROWNLEE, A.E.I. 2009. Multivariate Markov networks for fitness modelling in an estimation of distribution algorithm. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

A well-known paradigm for optimisation is the evolutionary algorithm (EA). An EA maintains a population of possible solutions to a problem which converges on a global optimum using biologically-inspired selection and reproduction operators. These alg...

DEUM: a framework for an estimation of distribution algorithm based on Markov random fields. (2006)
Thesis
SHAKYA, S.K. 2006. DEUM: a framework for an estimation of distribution algorithm based on Markov random fields. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Estimation of Distribution Algorithms (EDAs) belong to the class of population based optimisation algorithms. They are motivated by the idea of discovering and exploiting the interaction between variables in the solution. They estimate a probability...
