## How can we solve the problem of genetic algorithm?

When & How to Solve Problems with Genetic Algorithms

- Determine the problem and goal.
- Break down the solution to bite-sized properties (genomes)
- Build a population by randomizing said properties.
- Evaluate each unit in the population.
- Selectively breed (pick genomes from each parent)
- Rinse and repeat.

## What is the stopping condition for the genetic algorithm?

A GA is stopped or terminated after N iterations when bN < ϵ, where ϵ(> 0) is a user defined small quantity. Given below are the basic steps of the genetic algorithm with elitist model where variance of the best solutions obtained in the generations is considered as a stopping criterion.

**How can genetic algorithm maximize a function?**

Genetic Algorithm to Maximize a Function

- To optimise the stalagmite function and find the global maxima of the function.
- Outline on how Genetic Algorithm works.
- Population.
- Creating the Next Generation.
- Fitness Function.
- Parent Selction.
- Creating New Generation.
- Advantages of GAs.

**Why is selection necessary in genetic algorithm?**

The primary objective of the selection operator is to emphasize the good solutions and eliminate the bad solutions in a population while keeping the population size constant. Now how to identify the good solutions? Algorithms.

### What are the steps in genetic algorithm?

Five phases are considered in a genetic algorithm:

- Initial population.
- Fitness function.
- Selection.
- Crossover.
- Mutation.

### When should a genetic algorithm be terminated?

Commonly, the algorithm terminates when either a maximum number of generations has been produced, or a satisfactory fitness level has been reached for the population. A typical genetic algorithm requires: a genetic representation of the solution domain, a fitness function to evaluate the solution domain.

**How do parents choose genetic algorithm?**

through roulette wheel selection or tournament selection. The two parents make a child, then you mutate it with mutation probability and add it to the next generation. If no, then you select only one “parent” clone it, mutate it with probability and add it to the next population.

**What are the two main features of genetic algorithm * 5 points?**

Answer: three main component or genetic operation in generic algorithm are crossover , mutation and selection of the fittest.

## What is the first step in genetic algorithm?

Five phases are considered in a genetic algorithm: Initial population. Fitness function. Selection.
