We briefly describe genetic algorithms (GAs) and focu attention on initial population generation methods for tw dimensional knapsack problems. Based on wo describing the probability a random solution vector feasible for 0-1 knapsack problems, we propose a sim heuristic for randomly generating good initial population for genetic algorithm applications to two-dimensiona knapsack problems. We report on an experime comparing a current population generation technique w our proposed approach and find… CONTINUE READING
