Genetic diversity plays an important role in avoiding premature convergence, which is a phenomenon that stifles the search effectiveness of evolutionary algorithms. However, approaches that avoid premature convergence by maintaining genetic diversity can do so at the cost of efficiency, requiring more fitness evaluations to find high quality solutions. We(More)
Many diversity techniques have been developed for addressing premature convergence, which is a serious problem that stifles the search effectiveness of evolutionary algorithms. However, approaches that aim to avoid premature convergence can often take longer to discover a solution. The Genetic Marker Diversity algorithm is a new technique that has been(More)
