Abstract or Description
The concept of partial evaluation of ¯tness functions, together with mechanisms manipulating the resource allocation of population based search methods, are presented in the context of Stochastic Diffusion Search, a novel swarm intelligence metaheuristic that has many similarities with ant and evolutionary algorithms. It is demonstrated that the stochastic process ensuing from
