15.1 INTRODUCTION TO GENETIC ALGORITHMS

Genetic Algorithms (GA) are evolutionary computational models based on Charles Darwin’s theory of natural evolution based on the concept of the survival of the fittest. The original GA and its many variants, collectively known as genetic algorithms, are computational procedures that mimic the natural process of evolution. The theories of evolution and natural selection were first proposed by Darwin to explain his observations of plants and animals in the natural world. He observed that, as variations are ...
