Genetic algorithms -- Evaluation, occam (Computer program language), Epistasis (Genetics), Data mining
The building block hypothesis implies that genetic algorithm effectiveness is influenced by the relative location of epistatic genes on the chromosome. We demonstrate this with a discrete-valued problem, based on Kauffman’s NK model, and show that information-theoretic reconstructability analysis can be used to decide on optimal gene ordering.
