  • Although it is known from GA literature that proportionate selection is subject to many pitfalls, the LCS community somewhat adhered to proportionate selection. Also in the accuracy-based learning classifier system XCS, introduced by Wilson in 1995, proportionate selection is used. This paper identifies problem properties in which performance of proportionate selection is impaired. Consequently, tournament selection is introduced which makes XCS more parameter independent, noise independent… CONTINUE READING
