Genetic Algorithms

Definition: [crh] Models that optimize rules by mimicking the Darwinian Law of survival of the fittest. A set of rules are chosen by those that work the best. The weakest are discarded. In addition, two successfDefinition: ul rules can be combined (the equivalent to genetic cross-overs) to produce offspring rules. The offspring can replace the parents, or they will be discarded if less successful than the parents. MutaDefinition: tion is also accomplished by randomly changing elements. Mutation and cross-over occur with low probability, as in nature.
