A Genetic Algorithm Tutorial
by Darrell Whitley
Computer Science Department
Colorado State University.
This tutorial covers the canonical genetic algorithm as well as more experimental forms of genetic algorithms, including parallel island models and parallel cellular genetic algorithms. The tutorial also illustrates genetic search by hyperplane sampling. The theoretical foundations of genetic algorithms are reviewed, including the schema theorem as well as recently developed exact models of the canonical genetic algorithm.
