Adaptation and Ruggedness in an Evolvability Landscape

  title={Adaptation and Ruggedness in an Evolvability Landscape},
  author={Terry Van Belle and David H. Ackley},
Evolutionary processes depend on both selection—how fit any given individual may be, and on evolvability—how and how effectively new and fitter individuals are generated over time. While genetic algorithms typically represent the selection process explicitly by the fitness function and the information in the genomes, factors affecting evolvability are most… CONTINUE READING
