Abstract: Addressing dynamic optimization problems has attracted a growing interest from the evolutionary algorithm community in recent years due to its importance in the applications of evolutionary algorithms in real world problems. In order to study evolutionary algorithms in dynamic environments, one important work is to develop benchmark dynamic environments. This paper proposes two continuous dynamic problem generators. Both generators use linear transformation to move individuals, which preserves the distance among individuals. In the first generator, the linear transformation of individuals is equivalent to change the direction of some axes of the search space while in the second one it is obtained by successive rotations in different planes. Preliminary experiments were carried out to study the performance of some standard genetic algorithms in continuous dynamic environments created by the proposed generators.
