We propose a pyramid search strategy for these kinds of problems. In the pyramid strategy a number of populations are initialised and independently evolved for a number of generations at which point the worst performing populations are discarded. This evolve/discard process is continued until the problem is solved or one population remains. We show that for a number of deceptive problems the pyramid strategy results in a higher probability of success with fewer evaluations and a lower standard deviation of the number evaluations to success than the conventional approach of running to a maximum number of generations and then restarting.", notes = "CEC 2003 - A joint meeting of the IEEE, the IEAust, the EPS, and the IEE.", }
