On Some Aspects of Genetic and Evolutionary Methods for Optimization Purposes

Marcin Woźniak, Dawid Połap


In this paper, the idea of applying Baldwin effect in a hybrid genetic algorithm with gradient local search is formulated. For two different test functions is examined proposed version of algorithm. Research results are presented and discussed to show potential efficiency of applied Baldwin effect.
