The two-stage recombination operator and its application to the multiobjective 0/1 knapsack problem: a comparative study

In this paper, we propose a new recombination operator and test its performance in the context of the multiobjective 0/1 knapsack problem (MOKP). The proposed recombination operator generates only one offspring solution from a selected pair of parents according to the two following stages. In the first stage, called genetic shared-information stage or similarity-preserving stage, … Read more
