A Solvable Model Of A Hard Optimisation Problem: 1st
The dynamics of a genetic algorithm (GA) on a model of a hard optimisation problem are analysed using a formalism which describes the changing fitness distribution of the GA population under ranking selection, uniform crossover and mutation. The time to solve the optimisation problem is calculated in a closed form expression which enables the effect of the various GA parameters --- population size, mutation rate and selection scheme --- to be understood.

Abstract

The dynamics of a genetic algorithm (GA) on a model of a hard optimisation problem are analysed using a formalism which describes the changing fitness distribution of the GA population under ranking selection, uniform crossover and mutation. The time to solve the optimisation problem is calculated in a closed form expression which enables the effect of the various GA parameters --- population size, mutation rate and selection scheme --- to be understood.
