genetic algorithm, crossover, problem space


This paper presents a new crossover operator for the Genetic Algorithm process, the SENSE operator. The SENSE operator can improve the performance of the GA process both in answer quality and speed. The SENSE operator has a different mechanism of combining solutions. The crossover takes place in problem space rather than chromosome space. The SENSE operator can be used as a complete replacement for the traditional crossover operator or can be combined with it. This ability provides the GA process with the good characteristics of both operators. This results in significant performance improvement.
