Implementation of a Basic Genetic Algorithm
Chapter 2

In this chapter we will begin to explore the techniques used to implement a basic genetic algorithm. The program we develop here will be modified adding features in the succeeding chapters in this book. We will also explore how the performance of a genetic algorithm can vary depending on its parameters and configuration.
