Estimation of distribution algorithms (EDAs) are stochastic optimization techniques that are based on building
and sampling a probability model. Copula theory provides methods that simplify the estimation of a probability
model. An islandbased version of copulabased EDA with probabilistic model migration (mCEDA) was
tested on a set of wellknown standard optimization benchmarks in the continuous domain. We investigated
two families of copulas  Archimedean and elliptical. Experimental results confirm that this concept of model
migration (mCEDA) yields better convergence as compared with the sequential version (sCEDA) and other
recently published copulabased EDAs.
