Measurement of anisotropy in fitness landscapes

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingsConference contributionpeer-review


In this work we elaborate on the measurement of anisotropy in fitness landscapes by defining an extension over arbitrary base measures. This rather pragmatic method's soundness is justified by statistical argument and tested on several existing and new fitness landscapes. Moreover, new variants of the popular NK landscapes are introduced that exhibit varying degrees of anisotropy.
