Example text

1 The Informed Inversion Problem The Necessity of Algorithm Tuning We have demonstrated above that the performance of all blind inversion schemes are exactly the same, when averaged over all conceivable fit functions, or subsets hereof. This means that if, for example, a genetic algorithm performs better than a crude random search on certain problems, it will perform worse on other problems. Apparently, this result is contradicted by the experience of a vast number of researchers who have seen popular algorithms outperforming crude random search by several orders of magnitude.

Mosegaard The Blind Inversion Problem It is often reported in the literature that solutions to nonlinear inverse problems were obtained by problem-independent algorithms, the so-called meta-heuristics. This type of algorithms is claimed to work efficiently because of some general, external (problem independent) principle. For example, simulated annealing [5] inherits its efficiency from thermodynamic principles, genetic algorithms [6,7] exploit evolutionary principles, and taboo-search [8] uses some ’common sense’ strategy.
