This paper is concerned with the application of the parameter-free genetic algorithm (PfGA) proposed by Sawai and colleagues and the parallel distributed PfGA, to the fixed channel assignment problem. The results of the investigation are presented. The PfGA does not include parameters such as the population size, the crossover rate, and the mutation rate, which have been indispensable in the conventional genetic algorithm (GA). This eliminates parameter tuning for each problem, which is a very… CONTINUE READING
