A Genetic Algorithm for Channel Routing using Inter-Cluster Mutation
In this paper, we propose an algorithm for the channel routing problem based on genetic approach that uses a new type of mutation, called inter-cluster mutation . The performance ...

Dining with GAs: Operator Lunch Theorems
There has been considerable discussion of the pros/cons of recombination and mutation operators in the context of Holland's schema theory. In this paper we de ne a common fra...

Is operator-based mutant selection superior to random mutant selection?
Due to the expensiveness of compiling and executing a large number of mutants, it is usually necessary to select a subset of mutants to substitute the whole set of generated mutan...

Inter-Class Mutation Operators for Java
The effectiveness of mutation testing depends heavily on the types of faults that the mutation operators are designed to represent. Therefore, the quality of the mutation operator...

Object-Oriented Mutation to Asses the Quality of Tests
The quality of a test suite can be measured using mutation analysis. Groups of OO mutation operators are proposed for testing object-oriented features. The OO operators applied to...

A Game-Theoretic Approach for Designing Mixed Mutation Strategies
Abstract. Different mutation operators have been proposed in evolutionary programming. However, each operator may be efficient in solving a subset of problems, but will fail in an...
