Genetic Algorithms for Changing Environments

  title={Genetic Algorithms for Changing Environments},
  author={John J. Grefenstette},
Genetic algorithms perform an adaptive search by maintaining a population of candidate solutions that are allocated dynamically to promising regions of the search space. The distributed nature of the genetic search provides a natural source of power for searching in changing environments. As long as sufficient diversity remains in the population the genetic algorithm can respond to a changing response surface by reallocating future trials. However, the tendency of genetic algorithms to converge… CONTINUE READING
