Convergence Models of Genetic Algorithm Selection Schemes

  title={Convergence Models of Genetic Algorithm Selection Schemes},
  author={Dirk Thierens and David E. Goldberg},
We discuss the use of normal distribution theory as a tool to model the convergence characteristics of di erent GA selection schemes The models predict the proportion of optimal alleles in function of the number of generations when optimizing the bit counting function The selection schemes analyzed are proportionate selection tournament selec tion truncation selection and elitist recombination Simple yet accurate models are derived that have only a slight deviation from the experimen tal… CONTINUE READING
