AMaLGaM IDEAs in noisy black-box optimization benchmarking

This paper describes the application of a Gaussian Estimation-of-Distribution (EDA) for real-valued optimization to the noisy part of a benchmark introduced in 2009 called BBOB (Black-Box Optimization Benchmarking). Specifically, the EDA considered here is the recently introduced parameter-free version of the Adapted Maximum-Likelihood Gaussian Model Iterated Density-Estimation Evolutionary Algorithm (AMaLGaM-IDEA). Also the version with incremental model building (iAMaLGaM-IDEA) is considered.
