Geometric crossover is a formal class of crossovers which includes many well-known recombination operators across representations. In this paper, we present a general result showing that all evolutionary algorithms using geometric crossover with no mutation perform the same form of convex search regardless of the underlying representation, the specific selection mechanism, the specific offspring distribution, the specific search space, and the problem at hand. We then start investigating a few… CONTINUE READING
