From Adaptive Population based Simplex

APS has been inspired by some previous works, in particular the ones of Luo et al. ^{}[1] ^{[2]} on Low dimensional simplex evolution (LDSE).

Each phase is explained on its own page (just click on the corresponding area of the figure). After the initialisation of $N$ individuals, all the other phases are in a loop on them. In the explanation, the current individual is called $x_i$. This loop is repeated as long as a stop criterion is not met. As usually, the stop criterion is either a maximum number of fitness evaluations, or an error value found smaller than a predefined threshold.
