ADAPTIVE APPROACHES TO PARAMETER CONTROL IN GENETIC ALGORITHMS AND GENETIC PROGRAMMING

Print

ABSTRACT

The paper concerns the application of Genetic Algorithms and GeneticĀ Programming to complex tasks such as automated design of control systems, where the space of solutions is non-trivial and may contain discontinuities. Several adaptive mechanisms for control of the search algorithm's parameters are proposed, investigated and compared to each other. It is shown that the proposed mechanisms are useful in preventing the search from getting trapped in local extremes of the fitness landscape.
