COmparing Continuous Optimizers
COCO (COmparing Continuous Optimisers) is a platform for systematic and sound comparisons of real-parameter global optimisers. COCO provides benchmark function testbeds (noiseless and noisy) and tools for processing and visualizing data generated by one or several optimizers. The code for processing experiments is provided in Matlab and C. The post-processing code is provided in Python. The code has been improved and used for the GECCO 2009 workshop “Black Box Optimization Benchmarking” (BBOB-2009) (see Section 6.4 ), and will serve as a basis for the test platform in the CSDL project.
