Sensitivity of a genetic algorithm to the mutation rate parameter value: results for a crystallographic test
Polish Academy of Sciences, Institute of Physics, al. Lotników 32/46, Warszawa 02-668, Poland
Genetic algorithms (GAs) represent a family of powerful global-search methods applicable to solving high-complexity optimisation tasks in science, technology and everyday life. The global-optimisation strategies based on the genetic approach mimic the evolution of living organisms. Applications in materials science, physics, chemistry, crystallography, technology, industry, medicine, economy, communication can be found in literature. In crystallography and related fields, the GAs are used e.g. for molecular design, for structure prediction, and for solving structures. Moreover, they constitute an important tool for image analysis, e.g. in medicine, and can be used for analysis of various kinds of data collected at 2D detectors.
