No Free Lunch Theorems For Optimization - Evolutionary ...

Section V-A demonstrates that the NFL theorems allow one to answer a number of what would otherwise seem to be intractable questions. The implications of these answers for measures of algorithm performance and of how best to compare optimization algorithms are explored in Section V-B. In Section VI we discuss some of the ways in which,
