In evolutionary computation, genetic operators, such as mutation and crossover, are employed to perturb individuals to generate the next population. However these fixed, problem independent genetic operators may destroy the sub-solution, usually called building blocks, instead of discovering and preserving them. One way to overcome this problem is to build a model based on the good individuals, and sample this model to obtain the next population. There is a wide range of such work in genetic… CONTINUE READING
