Usage

reproduction(population,xfreq,mfreq,xoverpoints,pinvert,elitism)

Arguments

population

Numeric array representing a population of binary GA chromosomes.

xfreq

Crossover frequency: probability of each pair of solutions having the crossover operator being applied.

mfreq

Mutation frequency: probability of flipping each bit in each GA solution is mfreq/ncol(x).

xoverpoints

The number of 'crossover points' in the crossover operation (see details).

pinvert

The probability with which the order of the subset to be swapped of one of the solutions will be reversed prior to crossover.

elitism

Boolean indicating whether or not the fittest solution should be guaranteed to pass into the next generation.

Details

Reproduction is the stage of a GA in which the solutions that are selected to be passed onto the next generation have the potential to be altered to construct new, and potentially better, solutions.

Value

Numeric array representing a population of binary GA chromosomes, derived from population.
