Tools of investigation of time and functional efficiency of bionic algorithms for function optimization problems

V.I. Shynkarenko, P.V. Ilchenko, H.V. Zabula


An instrumental environment for determining the time and functional efficiency of algorithms are developed. Abilities of studying the effectiveness of algorithms on a set of special "uncomfortable" functions, which can be changed and implemented are provided. Computer experiments are carried out, including the definition of theoretical foundations, preparation, implementation and analysis of the results. The dependency of the time and functional efficiency of the rouge algorithm on the number of parameters of functions whose global extremum is determined, and the parameters of the roaming algorithm: population size and number of epochs are obtained. In the developed environment, it is possible to study other bionic algorithms.
