Genetic Algorithm Optimiser

Postby systech » 22 Feb 2007

In trying a few comparison optimisations, I found that the genetic algorithm optimiser takes about twice as long as using the brute force optimiser, but it's supposed to take much less time. Why is that?

Dear systech,

GA optimization starts getting benefit when the number of combinations is several thousands or more.

E.g. for a 1-million size combination the GA may perform the optimization several times faster than brute-force or even dozens times faster.
