In this paper, a multi-population version of Adaptive Inflationary Differential Evolution, which automatically adapts the crossover probability and the differential weight of the Differential Evolution, is presented. The multi-population algorithm exploits the use of different populations, and the local minima found by each population, to assess the distance between minima; a probabilistic kernel based approach is then used to automatically adapt the dimension of a bubble in which the population is re-initialized after converging to a local minimum. The algorithm is tested on two real case functions and on two difficult academic functions.
