copulaedas: Estimation of Distribution Algorithms Based on Copulas

Provides a platform where EDAs (estimation of distribution algorithms) based on copulas can be implemented and studied. The package offers complete implementations of various EDAs based on copulas and vines, a group of well-known optimization problems, and utility functions to study the performance of the algorithms. Newly developed EDAs can be easily integrated into the package by extending an S4 class with generic functions for their main components.
