Abstract

In this paper, we investigate the effectiveness of several techniques commonly recommended for overcoming convergence problems with coevolutionary algorithms. In particular, we investigate effects of the Hall of Fame, and of several diversity maintenance methods, on a problem designed to test the ability of coevolutionary algorithms to deal with an intransitive superiority relation between solutions. We measure and analyse the effects of these methods on population diversity and on solution quality.
