Previous studies of Genetic Algorithm (GA) optimization in nonstationary environments focus on discontinuous, Markovian switching environments. This study introduces the problem of GA optimization in continuous, nonstationary environments where the state of the environment is a function of time. The objective of the GA in such an environment is to select a sequence of values over time that minimize, or maximize, the time-average of the environmental evaluations. In this preliminary study, we… CONTINUE READING
