In classic evolutionary algorithms (EAs), solutions communicate each other in a very simple way so the recombination operator design is simple, which is easy in algorithms’ implementation. However, it is not in accord with nature world. In nature, the species have various kinds of relationships and affect each other in many ways. The relationships include competition, predation, parasitism, mutualism and pythogenesis. In this paper, we consider the five relationships between solutions to… CONTINUE READING
