Abstract: Genetic algorithms are optimisation algorithms. Every search and optimisation algorithm needs a representation which represents a solution to a specific problem. The major issue is to represent the parameter of the problem in the form of the chromosome. Choosing the right method of encoding chromosome is a crucial task and largely effects solving of optimization problem. This paper studies different encoding techniques and their associated genetic operations and then proposes a new encoding scheme to overcome the limitations of existing encoding techniques.
Keywords: building blocks, encoding, genetic algorithm, schema theorem.
