Genetic Algorithms, Path Relinking, and the Flowshop Sequencing Problem
tl;dr
In a previous paper, a simple genetic algorithm (GA) was developed for finding (approximately) the minimum makespan of the n-job, m-machine permutation flowshop sequencing problem (PFSP) was comparable to that of a naive neighborhood search technique and a proven simulated annealing algorithm.

Using Genetic Algorithms with Small Populations
tl;dr
We consider applications where it is important to use as small a population as possible, where the number of tness evaluations is limited, and where non-binary representations are important. Expand
