  • We have introduced two crossover operators, MMX-BLX exploit and MMX-BLX explore , for simultaneously solving multiple feature/subset selection problems where the features may have numeric attributes and the subset sizes are not predefined. These operators differ on the level of exploration and exploitation they perform; one is designed to produce convergence controlled mutation and the other exhibits a quasi-constant mutation rate. We illustrate the characteristic of these operators by evolving… CONTINUE READING
