Abstr act . Tournament select ion is a useful and rob ust select ion mechanism commonly used by genet ic algorithms (GAs). The selecti on pr essure of to urnament select ion direc tly varies wit h the tournam en t size-the more compe t it ors , t he higher the resulting select ion pr essur e. This pap er develops a model, based on order stat ist ics, that can be used to quantita tively predict th e resul ting select ion pr essure of a tournament of a given size. T his mo del is used to pr edict… CONTINUE READING
