I need to compare the performance of 3 Evolutionary algorithms on some Benchmark functions.

Evolutionary algorithms are a heuristic-based approach which are used to solve optimization problems.

I have collected their best optimum value on different benchmark functions for multiple independent runs and calculated their mean and standard deviation. Would this be suffice or I need to use some statistical tests like t-test to present some robust comparison.

Note: I have only collected the final best value of each algorithms not all values during different iterations

Thank you

  • $\begingroup$ Hi there and welcome. Some comments. 1) Could you elaborate a little on how your EAs are different? 2) Is it possible for you to re-run the simulations? Because I do not believe collecting only the final optima is enough for a fair comparison. At the very least you'll need the starting values. $\endgroup$ – Jim Jul 16 '18 at 19:18
  • $\begingroup$ @Jim Hello, All 3 EAs are different $\endgroup$ – arush1836 Jul 17 '18 at 6:32
