The bestest MasterMind Algorithm ever

Well, by now, you must be a bit tired of Mastermind papers but we are not, since we are obtaining the best results ever. After introducing end games to streamline the end of the algorithms, we have tweaked the evolutionary algorithm, adding a permutation operator, for instance, to reduce the number of evaluations needed to find the solution. The results is the best yet, but, of course, there’s more to come in the future.
This paper was presented at CEC 2011 in the games session, and raised quite a bit of interest. The paper will be available from IEEExplore soon, but you can request copies now if you want
