Analysis of positional fitness schemes. Plot showing the minimum objective value in the population through the generations of the GA for the default parameters (solid black line) and ten variations where a single feature is changed by invoking the respective options shown in the legend. These corresponds to choosing positions for mutation uniformly at random, as well as based on positional fitness schemes 1, 2, 3, and 5; choosing pairs of sequences for recombination uniformly at random or based on individual fitnesses; and choosing recombination points uniformly at random, as well as based on positional fitness schemes 1 and 2.
