  author={M Todd Sewell and J. Samarabandu and Ranga Rodrigo and Kenneth A. McIsaac},
A novel method of individual level adaptive mutation rate control called the rank-scaled mutation rate for genetic algorithms is introduced. The rank-scaled mutation rate controlled genetic algorithm varies the mutation parameters based on the rank of each individual within the population. Thereby the distribution of the fitness of the papulation is taken… CONTINUE READING
