Positional Effect of Crossover and Mutation in Grammatical Evolution

  title={Positional Effect of Crossover and Mutation in Grammatical Evolution},
  author={Tom Castle and Colin G. Johnson},
An often-mentioned issue with Grammatical Evolution is that a small change in the genotype, through mutation or crossover, may completely change the meaning of all of the following genes. This paper analyses the crossover and mutation operations in GE, in particular examining the constructive or destructive nature of these operations when occurring at points throughout a genotype. The results we present show some strong support for the idea that events occurring at the first positions of a… CONTINUE READING
