This pap er present s a theory of convergence for realcoded genet ic algorit hmsGAs that use float ing-point or oth er highcardinality codings in their chromosomes . The theory is consistent with th e theory of schemata and postulates tha t select ion domin ates early GA perform ance and restri cts subsequent search to int ervals with above-average fun ction values, dimension-by-dimension. These intervals may be further subdivided on the basis of th eir at tract ion under genet ic hillclimbin g… CONTINUE READING
