Remarks on a Recent Paper on the "No Free Lunch" Theorems [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
This note discusses the recent paper "Some technical remarks on the proof of the no free lunch theorem" by Koppen (2000). In that paper, some technical issues related to the formal proof of the no free lunch (NFL) theorem for search were given by Wolpert and Macready (1995, 1997). The present authors explore the issues raised in that paper including the presentation of a simpler version of the NFL proof in accord with a suggestion made explicitly by Koppen (2000) and implicitly by Wolpert and Macready (1997). They also includes the correction of an incorrect claim made by Koppen (2000) of a limitation of the NFL theorem. Finally, some thoughts on future research directions for research into algorithm performance are given.
