COCO postprocessed data archive


COCO (COmparing Continuous Optimizers) is a platform for systematic and sound comparisons of real-parameter global optimizers. Here, we provide postprocessed data from all 300+ officially supported algorithm data sets for the various available test suites. Due to the large amount of algorithms (and the limited space in the figures), we group algorithm data sets by year of publication.

The Python code to locally generate the first entry, bbob 2009, in the table (other entries work respectively) reads


import cocopp               # see https://pypi.org/project/cocopp
cocopp.main('bbob/2009/*')  # will take several minutes to process
