Graph-based evolutionary algorithms have been theorized to provide a structured way to mediate the competing processes of exploitation and exploration at a global level in optimizing problems with evolutionary algorithms. However, this hypothesis remains largely untested. This thesis explores this hypothesis by examining two contrasting problems that embody the hypothesized tradeoff between exploration and exploitation, the PORS 15 and 16 problems.
