The genetic algorithm technique known as crowding preserves population diversity by pairing each offspring with a similar individual in the current population (pairing phase) and deciding which of the two will survive (replacement phase). The replacement phase of crowding is usually carried out through deterministic or probabilistic crowding, which have the limitations that they apply the same selective pressure regardless of the problem being solved and the stage of genetic algorithm search… CONTINUE READING
