Member Function Documentation

void Chromosome::cross Chromosome &    a,
float    P_CROSS

Applies cross-over operator between this individual and the individual referenced by 'a'. Cross-over algorithm used is as below:

  • For each individual consider weight and threshold matrices as a linear vector 'v'
  • find a random number 'c' in range [0-length(v)]
  • swap elements whose indices are smaller than c

void Chromosome::mutate float    P_MUT,
int    N_MUT,
float    M_MUT

Mutates the genes of individual. Mutation algorithm used is as below:

  • for N_MUT random weights and thresholds
  • add (0.5-RAND)*M_MUT
where RAND is a random number in range [0-1]
