  author={Elena Simona Nicoara and Bd. Bucureşti},
The optimization by genetic algorithms often comes along with premature convergence bias, especially in the multimodal problems. In the paper, we propose and test two mechanisms to avoid the premature convergence of genetic algorithms by preserving the population diversity in two different manners. These are the dynamic application of many genetic operators, based on the average progress, and the population partial reinitialization. The mechanisms were tested by implementing them in the NSGA_II… CONTINUE READING
