Redundant Representations in Evolutionary Computation
TLDR
We present quantitative models that describe how the necessary population size and the time to convergence is changed and illustrate their relevance for two different types of synonymously redundant representations. Expand

Prüfer numbers: a poor representation of spanning trees for evolutionary search
TLDR
We examine the properties of Prufer numbers and compare them with other codings in evolutionary algorithms for four problems that involve spanning trees. Expand
