mGGA: The meta-Grammar Genetic Algorithm

  title={mGGA: The meta-Grammar Genetic Algorithm},
  author={Michael O'Neill and Anthony Brabazon},
A novel Grammatical Genetic Algorithm, the meta-Grammar Genetic Algorithm (mGGA) is presented. The mGGA borrows a grammatical representation and the ideas of modularity and reuse from Genetic Programming, and in particular an evolvable grammar representation from Grammatical Evolution by Grammatical Evolution. We demonstrate its application to a number of benchmark problems where significant performance gains are achieved when compared to static grammars.
