Abstract : Mirrored mutations as well as active covariance matrix adaptation are two techniques that have been introduced into the well-known CMA-ES algorithm for numerical optimization. Here, we investigate the impact of active covariance matrix adaptation in the IPOP-CMA-ES with mirrored mutation and a small initial population size. Active covariance matrix adaptation improves the performance on 8 of the 24 benchmark functions of the noiseless BBOB test bed. The effect is the largest on the ill-conditioned functions with the largest improvement on the discus function where the expected runtime is more than halved. On the other hand, no statistically significant adverse effects can be observed.
