Mutation of Java Objects
Fault insertion based techniqueshave been used for measuring test adequacy and testability of programs. Mutation analysis inserts faults into a program with the goal of creating m...

Implicit Parallelism
This paper assumes a search space of fixed-length strings, where the size of the alphabet can vary from position to position. Structural crossover is mask-based crossover, and thu...

A Study of the Role of Single Node Mutation in Genetic Programming
In this paper we examine the effects of single node mutations on trees evolved via genetic programming. The results show that neutral mutations are less likely for nodes nearer th...

A Step Size Preserving Directed Mutation Operator
Using a directed mutation can improve the efficiency of processing many optimization problems. The first mutation operators of this kind proposed by Hildebrand [1], however, suffer...

Choreogenetics: the generation of choreographic variants through genetic mutations and selection
In this paper, a genetic algorithm is introduced to generate variants of a choreographic sequence, which are then selected using different criteria. The mutation phase of the algo...

Accelerating Real-Valued Genetic Algorithms Using Mutation-with-Momentum
: In a canonical genetic algorithm, the reproduction operators (crossover and mutation) are random in nature. The direction of the search carried out by the GA system is driven pur...
