Contributions from other teams
Note that some part of IOHexperimenter have been writthen by other teams. We acknowledge that:
- The pseudo random number generator is implemented by NumBBO/COCO team in the Numerical Black-Box Optimization Benchmarking Framework (https://github.com/numbbo/coco).
- The BBOB problem set is taken from the COCO framework.
- The W-model was originally proposed in Weise, Thomas, and Zijun Wu. “Difficult features of combinatorial optimization problems and the tunable W-model benchmark problem for simulating them.” In Proceedings of the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference Companion, pp. 1769-1776. 2018..
