fitness function

Genetic algorithm parenting fitness

The evolution scheme phase, in which the genetic algorithms select individuals that will form the new population, had an important impact on these algorithms.  Many approaches exist in the literature.  However, these approaches consider only the value of the fitness function to differenciate best solutions from the worst ones.  This article introduces the parenting fitness, a novel parameter, that defines the capacity of an individual to produce fittest offsprings.  Combining the standard fitness function and the parenting fitness helps the genetic algorithm to be more efficient, hence, pro
