Optimization
Chapter 6

In this chapter we will explore different techniques that are frequently used to optimize genetic algorithms. Additional optimization techniques become increasingly important as the problem being solved becomes more complex. A well-optimized algorithm can save hours or even days when solving larger problems; for this reason, optimization techniques are essential when the problem reaches a certain level of complexity.

In addition to exploring some common optimization techniques, this chapter will also cover a few implementation examples using the genetic algorithms from the previous chapters’ case studies.

Adaptive Genetic Algorithms

Adaptive genetic algorithms (AGA) are a popular subset of genetic algorithms which ...
