Genetic Algorithm Example based on Koza, J. 1993. Genetic Programming. Cambridge MA: Basic Books

D Goforth - COSC 4117, fall 20062 Avoiding paths altogether  genetic algorithms 1.pick set of states randomly 2.order states by fitness 3.create new set of states by combining state variables of most fit 4.make a few random changes to state variables 5.go to 2

D Goforth - COSC 4117, fall 20063 Example: Koza, based on Goldberg and Samtani in 1986  Problem minimize cost of 10-member truss that meets stress requirements 100kg 8m 6m A10 A1 A2 A3 A4 A5 A6 A7 A8 A9

D Goforth - COSC 4117, fall 20064 Example: Koza, based on Goldberg and Samtani in 1986  Problem minimize cost of 10-member truss that meets stress requirements 100kg 8m 6m A10 A1 A2 A3 A4 A5 A6 A7 A8 A9

D Goforth - COSC 4117, fall 20065 Problem definition  16 levels of strength for beams based on cross- section; cost increases with cross-section  Stress requirements for the truss  Goal: minimize cost of safe truss 100kg 8m 6m A10 A1 A2 A3 A4 A5 A6 A7 A8 A9 Cost is minimized by minimizing truss weight = cross-section * length Stress calculations are based on all member weights (succeed/fail)

D Goforth - COSC 4117, fall 20066 Problem representation  Represent cross-sections by 4-bit binary code  Represent a particular design by 10x4=40 bits E.g., 0110 1101 0101 0101 1011 0110 1010 1010 1111 0111 A1 A2 A3 A4 A5 A6 A7 A8 A9 A10  State space is set of all possible designs 2 40 designs  No obvious start state; no “path” to solution  Genetic algorithm

D Goforth - COSC 4117, fall 20068 Genetic Algorithm II 3.create new set of states by combining state variables of (3) most fit and replacing least fit 1011 0110 1010 1010 1011 0110 1010 1010 1111 0111 (337) 0110 1101 0101 0101 1011 0110 1010 1010 1111 0111 (351) 0110 1101 0101 0101 1011 0110 1101 0101 1010 0111 (366) 0110 1101 0100 0101 1111 1101 0101 0111 0110 0101 (370) 1011 0110 1010 1010 1111 1101 1101 0111 0110 0101 (377) 1101 1011 0110 1010 0110 1111 1101 0101 1010 0111 (391) 4.make a few mutations (random changes to variables) 5.go to 2 repeat until no more improvement in best fitness
