Evolutionary Programming. Shown is the process of the Evolutionary Programming optimization technique utilized to find the optimal kernel parameters. The process creates an initial population of candidate solutions (chromosomes) which undergo a stochastic search for the optimal parameter through the sub-processes of mutation and tournament selection of the 'most-fit' genes.
