This paper introduces in details a genetic algorithm-called BASIC, which is designed to take advantage of well known genetic schemes so as to be able to deal with numerous optimization problems. BASIC GA follows all common steps of the genetic algorithms. It involves real representation schemes for both real and integer variables. Three biased selection schemes for reproduction; four for recombination and three for mutation are applied in it and a new selection scheme for replacement is… CONTINUE READING
