5.2.5 Advanced Operators

 

The simple operators and representations described above form the backbone of all GAs, but, because natural genetics is in reality a much more complex phenomenon than that portrayed so far, it is possible to conceive of several alternative representations and operators which have particular advantages for some GA applications, including:

These and other advanced operators are discussed in detail in Chapter 5 of the seminal book by Goldberg [31].
