Evolutionary algorithms have been frequently used for
dynamic optimization problems. With this paper, we contribute to the
theoretical understanding of this research area. We present the
first computational complexity analysis of evolutionary algorithms

for a dynamic variant of a classical combinatorial optimization
problem, namely makespan scheduling. We study the model of a strong
adversary which is allowed to change one job at regular intervals.
Furthermore, we investigate the setting of random changes. Our
results show that randomized local search and a simple evolutionary
algorithm are very effective in dynamically tracking changes made to
the problem instance.
