Hyperplane Elimination Nominated Best Paper at EvoCOP
My nomination streak continues, this time at the European Conference on Evolutionary Computation in Combinatorial Optimisation (EvoCOP). My paper is titled Hyperplane Elimination for Quickly Enumerating Local Optima. The basic idea is that for certain types of problems, it is possible to determine that large portions of the search space cannot contain any local optima. As a result, Hyperplane elimination was able to find all local optima of landscapes that would take previous methods an estimated 900 million years to complete in just 6 minutes.
