How sensitivity analysis can improve metaheuristic convergence

EasyChair Preprint no. 2525

2 pagesDate: February 1, 2020


The paper presents the coupling of a sensitivity analysis (SA) method and a metaheuristic (here PSO). The SA method will analyse a certain number of evaluations made by the metaheuristic to compute effect of each input variable on the objective function results (linear, non linear, negligible).

According to these results,  for each variable, an indicator is deduced and added in the moving equation. The goal is to increase the shift of a viriable which has a linear effect and reduce it in case of non linear effect.

Though a toy example, we illustrate the behavior and resullts of our method.

Keyphrases: Analyse de sensibilité, métaheuristiques, Optimisation
