Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

    Abstract

    In this paper, a multi-population version of Adaptive Inflationary Differential Evolution, which automatically adapts the crossover probability and the differential weight of the Differential Evolution, is presented. The multi-population algorithm exploits the use of different populations, and the local minima found by each population, to assess the distance between minima; a probabilistic kernel based approach is then used to automatically adapt the dimension of a bubble in which the population is re-initialized after converging to a local minimum. The algorithm is tested on two real case functions and on two difficult academic functions.
