genetic algorithms ==>
(GA) An evolutionary algorithm which generates each individual from some encoded
form known as a "chromosome" or "genome". Chromosomes are combined or mutated to
breed new individuals. "Crossover", the kind of recombination of chromosomes
found in sexual reproduction in nature, is often also used in GAs. Here, an
offspring's chromosome is created by joining segments choosen alternately from
each of two parents' chromosomes which are of fixed length.
GAs are useful for multidimensional optimisation problems in which the
chromosome can encode the values for the different variables being optimised.
