The Mixing Rate of Different Crossover Operators

The Mixing Rate of Different Crossover Operators
The Mixing Rate of Different Crossover Operators
In order to understand the mixing effect of crossover a simple shuffling problem is considered. The time taken for the strings in a population to become mixed is calculated for different crossover procedures. Uniform crossover is found to mix the population fastest, while single-point crossover causes very slow mixing. Two-point crossover extrapolates between these two limiting cases.

Abstract

In order to understand the mixing effect of crossover a simple shuffling problem is considered. The time taken for the strings in a population to become mixed is calculated for different crossover procedures. Uniform crossover is found to mix the population fastest, while single-point crossover causes very slow mixing. Two-point crossover extrapolates between these two limiting cases.
