Top Five Papers are listed below (Codes Available for #2 & #5)

  1. T. Takahama, and S. Sakai, "Constrained Optimization by the ε Constrained Differential Evolution with Gradient-Based Mutation and Feasible Elites", Hiroshima City University, Japan (email: takahama@its.hiroshima-cu.ac.jp) & Hiroshima Shudo University, Japan (e-mail: setuko@shudo-u.ac.jp). (This method makes use of exact equations to compute gradients. EA methods make use of numerical methods to compute gradients and increment function evaluations used for the computation of gradients, instead of using the exact equations. Therefore, this method should not be compared with pure EA methods).
