Genetic Code as a Gray Code Revisited
In this paper we revisit the idea of relating the genetic code to a Gray code. This idea was originally fostered by Rosemary Swanson as a “unifying concept for the amino acid co...

Crick's Hypothesis Revisited: The Existence of a Universal Coding Frame
In 1957 Crick hypothesized that the genetic code was a comma free code. This property would imply the existence of a universal coding frame and make the set of coding sequences a ...

Dynamic Representations and Escaping Local Optima: Improving Genetic Algorithms and Local Search
Local search algorithms often get trapped in local optima. Algorithms such as tabu search and simulated annealing 'escape' local optima by accepting nonimproving moves. ...

Quad Search and Hybrid Genetic Algorithms
A bit climber using a Gray encoding is guaranteed to converge to a global optimum in fewer than ¢¤£¦¥¨§© evaluations on unimodal 1-D functions and on multi-dimensional sph...

Why evolution is not a good paradigm for program induction: a critique of genetic programming
We revisit the roots of Genetic Programming (i.e. Natural Evolution), and conclude that the mechanisms of the process of evolution (i.e. selection, inheritance and variation) are ...
