Finite Population Effects for Ranking and Tournament Selection

Finite Population Effects for Ranking and Tournament Selection
Finite Population Effects for Ranking and Tournament Selection
The effect of ranking and binary tournament selection on the distribution of fitnesses and genetic correlation is calculated for a finite population. The results are different for continuous and discrete fitness functions. Results for both situations are obtained. These exact results are compared to a previously obtained approximation up to the third cumulant and shown to be in good agreement. Tournament and ranking selection are compared with Boltzmann selection for which exact finite population effects are already known.

Abstract

The effect of ranking and binary tournament selection on the distribution of fitnesses and genetic correlation is calculated for a finite population. The results are different for continuous and discrete fitness functions. Results for both situations are obtained. These exact results are compared to a previously obtained approximation up to the third cumulant and shown to be in good agreement. Tournament and ranking selection are compared with Boltzmann selection for which exact finite population effects are already known.
