This evolution search strategy is a random strategy, and as such is particularly robust and will cope well with large numbers of variables or rugged objective funtions. It derives from the 'EVOL' Fortran routine of Schwefel, which uses Rechenberg's work on step-size adjustment.
Evol.pm works either automatically with an objective function to be minimised, or interactively with a (suitably patient) human who at each step will choose the better of two (or several) possibilities.
Math::Evol.pm This module implements the evolution search strategy. Derivatives of the objective function are not required. Constraints can be incorporated. The caller must supply initial values for the variables and for the initial step sizes.
