This paper reports work done over the past three years using rank-based allocation of reproductive trials. New evidence and arguments are presented which suggest that allocating reproductive trials according to rank is superior to tness proportionate reproduction. Ranking can not only be used to slow search speed, but also to increase search speed when appropriate. Furthermore, the use of ranking provides a degree of control over selective pressure that is not possible with tness proportionate… CONTINUE READING
