Comparative Study of Recent Multimodal Evolutionary Algorithms

This page contains the complimentary material for the paper Comparative Study of Recent Multimodal Evolutionary Algorithms[5]. This includes the implementation of PNA-NSGA2[1] (denoted MMNSGAII on the plots), MOBiDE[2] and NSGA2[3] used to obtain the presented results, as well as the results obtained for all the functions from the CEC2013 benchmark. The implementations were done in JAVA using ECJ[6] to implement the evolutionary algorithms.

All the results are computed with a precision of 1e-3.
