Evolution Strategies

Top  Previous  Next

Evolution Strategies are variants of genetic algorithms that use real numbers instead of integers in chromosomes, and therefore do not cross segments of a chromosome, but instead cross whole chromosomes. The individuals represent potential solutions to a problem. The individuals are tested by a fitness function and the results are used to determine if the individual will be included in the next generation of potential solutions. For more information refer to the book by Z. Michalewicz in the references.
