Abstract
Many real-world optimisation problems are of dynamic nature, requiring an optimisation algorithm which is able to continuously track a changing optimum over time. To achieve this, we propose two bio-inspired algorithms for solving dynamic optimisation problems with continuous variables: the self-adaptive differential evolution algorithm (jDE) and the differential ant-stigmergy algorithm (DASA). The performances of the jDE and the DASA are evaluated on the set of well-known benchmark problems provided for the special session on Evolutionary Computation in Dynamic and Uncertain Environments. We analyse the results for five algorithms presented by using non-parametric statistical test procedure. The two proposed algorithms show a consistently superior performance over other recently proposed methods. The results show that both algorithms are appropriate candidates for dynamic optimisation problems.
