1 Non-Uniform Mapping in Binary-Coded Genetic Algorithms Kalyanmoy Deb, Yashesh D. Dhebar, and N. V. R. Pavan Kanpur Genetic Algorithms Laboratory (KanGAL) Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur PIN , U.P., India KanGAL Report No Abstract. Binary-coded genetic algorithms (BGAs) traditionally use a uniform mapping to decode strings to corresponding real-parameter variable values. In this paper, we suggest a non-uniform mapping scheme for creating solutions towards better regions in the search space, dictated by BGA s population statistics. Both variable-wise and vector-wise non-uniform mapping schemes are suggested. Results on five standard test problems reveal that the proposed non-uniform mapping BGA (or NBGA) is much faster in converging close to the true optimum than the usual uniformly mapped BGA. With the base-line results, an adaptive NBGA approach is then suggested to make the algorithm parameterfree. Results are promising and should encourage further attention to non-uniform mapping strategies with binary coded GAs. 1 Introduction Genetic algorithms (GAs) were originally started with a binary-coded representation scheme [1,2], in which variables are first coded in binary strings comprising of Boolean variables (0 and 1). Since such a string of Boolean variables resembled a natural chromosomal structure of multiple genes concatenating to a chromosome, the developers of GAs thought of applying genetic operators (recombination and mutation) on to such binary strings hence the name genetic algorithms. For handling problems having real-valued variables, every real-valued variable x i is represented using a binary substring s i = (s i 1,si 2,...,si l i ) where s i j {0,1}. All n variables are then represented by l = n i=1 l i bits. Early GA researchers suggested a uniform mapping scheme to compute x i from a substring s i : x i = x (L) i + x(u) i x (L) i 2 li 1 DV(s i ), (1) where l i = s i is the number of Boolean variables (or bits) used to represent variable x i, x (L) i and x (U) i are lower and upper bounds of variable x i and DV(s i ) is the decoded value of string s i, given as follows: DV(s i ) = l j=1 2j 1 s i j. This

The size of hypercube is controlled by adjusting number of bits used for encoding. All the above were proposed in late eighties and early nineties, and have not been followed up adequately. Non-uniform mapping in BGA can produce faster convergence if some information about a good region in the search space is identified. Here, we suggest a simple procedure that uses the population statistics to create a non-uniform mapping in BGAs. 3 Proposed Non-Uniformly Mapped BGA (NBGA) In NBGA, we create more solutions near the best-so-far solution (x b,t ) at any generation t. We suggest a polynomial mapping function for this purpose with a user-defined parameter η. Let us consider Figure 1 in which the lower bound is a, upper bound is b of variable x i and i-th variable value of best-so-far solution is x b,t i at the current generation t. Let us also assume that the substring s i decodes A uniform mapping c d non uniform mapping e x 2 x x x b,t a x x xb,t b B Fig. 1. Non-uniform mapping scheme is shown. Area acdxa is equal to area aex a. x 1 to the variable value x i using Equation 1 with a = x (L) i Fig. 2. Vector-wise mapping scheme is shown. and b = x (U) i. The quantity in fraction varies between zero and one, as the decoded value DV(s i ) varies between zero and (2 li 1). Assuming the fraction ζ = DV(s i )/(2 li 1), which lies in [0,1], we observe a linear behavior between x i and ζ for uniform mapping used in BGA, x i = a+ζ(b a), or ζ = (x i a)/(b a). For NBGA, we re-map value x i to obtain x i (m : x i x i ) so that there is more concentration of points near x b,t i, as follows (with η 0) and as shown in Figure 1: m(ζ) = kζ η, (2) where k is a constant, which is chosen in such a manner that the point x i = x b,t i remains at its own place, that is, (x b,t a)/(b a) i 0 m(ζ)dζ = (x b,t i a)/(b a). This

4 4 Non-Uniform Mapping in Binary Genetic Algorithms condition givesus: k = (η+1)(b a) η 1 /(x b,t i a) η. Substituting k to Equation 2 and equating area under the mapped curve ( (x i a)/(b a) 0 m(ζ)dζ) with area under uniform mapping ((x i a)/(b a)), we have the following mapping: x i = a+ ( (x i a)(x b,t i a) η) 1/(1+η). (3) Figure 1 shows how the points in between a x i x b,t i are re-mapped to move towards x b,t i for η > 0. For a point in the range x b,t i x i b, a mapping similartothe abovewillcausethe solutionto movetowardsx b,t i aswell, asshown in the figure. It is clear that depending on the location of x b,t i at a generation, points towards left and right of it will get re-mapped towards the best-so-far point thereby providing a non-uniform mapping of the binary substrings in the range [a,b]. The above non-uniform mapping scheme can be implemented in two ways:(i) variable-wise and (ii) vector-wise. We describe them in the following subsections. 3.1 Variable-wise Mapping In variable-wise mapping, we perform the above re-mapping scheme for every variable one at a time, taking the corresponding variable value of the best-so-far solution (x b,t i ) and computing corresponding re-mapped value x i. This remapping operation is performed before an individual is evaluated. For an individual string s, first the substring s i is identified for i-th variable, and then x i is calculated using Equation 3. The variable value of the best-so-far solution of the previous generation is used. Thus, the initial generation does not use the nonuniform mapping, but all population members from generation 1 onwards are mapped non-uniformly as described. It is important to note that the original string s is unaltered. The individual is then evaluated using variable vector x. The selection, recombination and mutation operators are performed on the string s as usual. 3.2 Vector-wise Mapping In the vector-wise mapping, we coordinate the mapping of all variables in a systematic manner. The mapping operation is explained through Figure 2 for a two-variable case. For any individual s, its location (x) in the n-dimensional variable space can be identified using the original uniform mapping. Also, the location of the best-so-far (x b,t ) solution in the n-dimensional space is located next. Thereafter, these two points are joined by a straight line and the line is extended to find the extreme points (A and B) of the bounded search space. Parameterizing, x = A+d(x A), and substituting a = 0, x i = 1 and x b,t i = x b,t A / x A in Equation 3, we compute the re-mapped point x i and save it as d. Thereafter, the re-mapped variable vector can be computed as follows: x = A+d (x A). (4)

5 Non-Uniform Mapping in Binary-Coded Genetic Algorithms 5 The re-mapped vector will be created along the line shown in the figure and will be placed in between x and x b,t. The vector-wise re-mapping is done for every population member using the best-so-far solution and new solutions are created. They are then evaluated and used in the selection operator. Recombination and mutation operators are used as usual. Binary strings are unaltered. The vectorwise re-mapping is likely to work well on problems having a linkage among variables. We present the results obtained from both methods in the following section. 4 Results We use the binary tournament selection, a multi-variable crossover, in which a single-point crossover is used for each substring representing a variable, and the usual bit-wise mutation operator. We consider six standard unconstrained objective functions, which are given below: n Sphere: f(x) = x 2 i, (5) Ellipsoidal: f(x) = i=1 n ix 2 i, (6) i=1 Ackley: f(x) = 20exp 1 n 0.2 n Schwefel: f(x) = i=1 ) (1 n exp cos(2πx i) +20+e, (7) n x 2 i ( n i ) 2 x i, (8) i=1 j=1 n 1 [ Rosenbrock: f(x) = 100(xi+1 x 2 i) 2 +(1 x 2 i) ]. (9) i=1 All problems are considered for n = 20 variables. Following parameter values are fixed for all runs: Population size = 100, String length of each variable = 15, Lower Bound = 8, Upper Bound = 10, Selection type: Tournament Selection, Crossover: Variable wise crossover with crossover probability = 0.9, Mutation: Bitwise mutation with mutation probability = An algorithm terminates when any of the following two scenarios take place: (i) a maximum generation of t max = 3,000 is reached, or (ii) the difference between the best objective function value and the corresponding optimal function value of 0.01or less is achieved. For each function, 50runs areperformed and the number of function evaluations for termination of each run is recorded. Thereafter, minimum, median and maximum number of function evaluations (FE) are i=1

6 6 Non-Uniform Mapping in Binary Genetic Algorithms reported. Note that a run is called success (S), if a solution with a difference in objective function value from the optimal function value of 0.01 is achieved, otherwise the run is called a failure (F). In the case of failure runs, the obtained objective function values (f) are reported. 4.1 Linear Increase in η: Figure 1 suggests that a large value of η will bring solutions close to the current best solution. During initial generations, the use of a large η may not be a good strategy. Thus, first, we use an η-update scheme in which η is increased from zero linearly with generations to a user-specified maximum value η max at the maximum generation t max : η(t) = t t max η max. (10) We use different values of η max = 10, 100, 1000, 5000, 10000, and 15000, for variable-wise mapping case and compare results with the usual uniformly-mapped binary coded GA. The results are tabulated for sphere function in Table 1. The Table 1. Performance of linearly increasing η schemes are shown for the sphere Method FE or f S or F min median max BGA FE S = 17 9,701 13,201 23,501 f F = NBGA (η max = 10) FE S = 50 10,501 12, ,701 NBGA (η max = 100) FE S = 50 7,401 10,101 87,901 NBGA (η max = 1,000) FE S = 50 3,901 5,901 19,501 NBGA (η max = 5,000) FE S = 50 2,301 2,901 3,501 NBGA (η max = 10,000) FE S = 50 1,801 2,301 2,801 NBGA (η max = 15,000) FE S= 50 1,901 2,301 3,101 first aspect to note is that the original BGA (with uniform mapping) is not able to solve the sphere problem in 33 out of 50 runs in 3,000 generations, whereas all NBGA runs with η max 10 are able to find the desired solution in all 50 runs. This is a remarkable performance depicted by the proposed NBGA. The best NBGA performance is observed with η max = 10,000. Note that although such a high η max value is set, the median run with 2,301 function evaluations required 23 generations only. At this generation, η value set was η = (23/3000) 10000or The important matter in setting up η max = 10,000is that it sets up an appropriate rate of increase of η with generations (about 3.33 per generation) for the overall algorithm to work the best. An increase of η from 1.67 per generation to 3.33 per generation seems to work well for the Sphere function, however, an increase of η by 5 per generation (equivalent to η max =

7 Non-Uniform Mapping in Binary-Coded Genetic Algorithms 7 15,000) is found to be not so good for this problem. Since the sphere function is a unimodal problem, a large effective η maps the solution closer to the bestso-far solution. But a too close a solution to the best-so-far solution (achieved with a large η) may cause a premature convergence, hence a deterioration in performance is observed. Figure 3 shows the variation in function value of the population-best solution with generation for the sphere function of the best run. It is clear that NBGA is much faster compared to BGA.

At the final generation of the best run (having minimum function evaluations), an effective η = (57/3000) or 285 was used. This problem is also unimodal; hence a larger η produced a faster convergence. Notice here that the original BGA (with uniform mapping

8 8 Non-Uniform Mapping in Binary Genetic Algorithms of variables) is not able to find the desired solution (close to the true optimum) in all 50 runs in a maximum of 3,000 generations, whereas all runs with η max 1,000 are able to solve the problem in all 50 runs with a small number of function evaluations. Figure 4 shows the variation in function value of the population-best solution with generation for the ellipsoidal function of the best run. Again, NBGA is much faster compared to BGA. The performance of BGA and NBGA approaches on Ackley s function are shown in Table 3. The best performance is observed with η max = 10,000 with Table 3. Performance of linearly increasing η schemes are shown for the Ackley s Method FE or f S or F min median max BGA f F = NBGA (η max = 10) f F = NBGA (η max = 100) FE S = 33 74, , ,101 f F = NBGA (η max = 1,000) FE S = 50 20,601 32, ,701 NBGA (η max = 5,000) FE S = 50 11,001 40, ,701 NBGA (η max = 10,000) FE S = 50 10,301 31,601 66,701 NBGA (η max = 15,000) FE S = 36 9,201 25,701 51,301 f F = % successful runs. Here, η 1,054 is reached at the final generation of a median NBGA s run. Importantly, a rate of increase of 3.33 per generation seems to be the best choice for Ackley s The BGA is found to fail in all 50 runs.

Figure 6 shows the objective function value of the populationbest solution with generation for Schwefel s The proposed NBGA approach is found to be much faster compared to BGA. Next, we consider Rosenbrock s Table 5 shows the results. This Table 5.

BGA could not find the desired optimum in all 50 runs. Also, NBGAs with small η max values could not solve the problem. But, NBGA with η max = 10,000 is able to find the desired solution in 27 out of 50 runs. It is clear from the above section that (i) The proposed non-uniform mapping method (NBGA) performs much better than the usual BGA, and (ii) In general, a high value of η max produces a better performance.

Using the best-so-far solution information at every generation, the variable-wise and vector-wise non-uniformly coded BGAs (or NBGAs) map binary substrings to a variable value that is somewhat closer to the best-so-far solution than its original decoded value. The non-uniform mapping requires a parameter η max, which takes a non-negative value. The variablewise approach with an increasing η max -update is applied to five standard test problems and the performance of the proposed NBGA has been found to be much better than the BGA approach that uses a uniform mapping scheme. Thereafter, the NBGA approach has been made adaptive by iteratively updating the η max parameter associated with the NBGA approach. Starting with η max = 0 (uniform mapping) at the initial generation, the adaptive NBGA approachhas been found to update the η max parameteradaptivelyso as to produce similar results as in the case of increasing η max -update strategy. Both variablewise and vector-wise non-uniform approaches have been found to perform equally well. The research in evolutionary algorithms originally started with binary-coded GAs, but recently their use has been limited due to the advent of real-parameter GAs and other EC methodologies. Instead of BGA s usual choice of uniform mapping, the effective use of a non-uniformly mapped representation scheme demonstrated in this paper should cause a resurrection of BGAs in the near future.
