First of all: N.F.L.!!!
Nikolaus Hansen from Bionics & Evolution Technique at TUB (Technical University of Berlin) reports the results achieved through a CMA-ES (Covariance Matrix Adaptation Evolution Strategy) in the 2005 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation: Session On Real Paramater Optimization.
Here you have a complete list of all algorithms submitted.
The results are very interesting! :)
