Título: Evaluation of Bound Constraints Handling Methods in Differential Evolution using the CEC2017 Benchmark
Autores: Kreischer, Vinicius;Magalhães, Thiago;Barbosa, Helio;Krempser, Eduardo
This paper presents an experimental analysis of some of the most popular methods for handling boundary constraints in the Differential Evolution algorithm. We also propose an additional method were an infeasible mutant vector is scaled back to the allowable bounds through the selection of an adequate scale factor. The selected methods are applied to the CEC2017 benchmark suite for single objective real-parameter numerical optimization. We present a statistical analysis using the Wilcoxon test and Performance Profiles. The experimental results show the superiority of the method known as Resampling and that, for some scenarios, our proposed method might be a good option.
