In the real world, there are a number of optimization problems whose search space is restricted to take binary values; however, there are many continuous metaheuristics with good results in continuous search spaces. These algorithmsmust be adapted to solve binary problems. This paper surveys articles focused on the binarization of metaheuristics designed for continuous optimization.
