A novel hybrid genetic algorithm for solving Sudoku puzzles

  title={A novel hybrid genetic algorithm for solving Sudoku puzzles},
  author={Xiu Qin Deng and Yong Da Li},
  journal={Optimization Letters},
In this article, a novel hybrid genetic algorithm is proposed. The selection operator, crossover operator and mutation operator of the genetic algorithm have effectively been improved according to features of Sudoku puzzles. The improved selection operator has impaired the similarity of the selected chromosome and optimal chromosome in the current population such that the chromosome with more abundant genes is more likely to participate in crossover; such a designed crossover operator has… CONTINUE READING
