Genetic Algorithms (GAs) are a commonly used stochastic search
heuristic which have been applied to a plethora of problem domains.
GAs work on a population of chromosomes (an encoding of a solution
to the problem at hand) and breed solutions from fit parents to
hopefully produce fitter children through a process of crossover and
mutation. This work discusses two novel crossover approaches for GAs
when applied to the optimisation of time-series problems, with particular
application to bio-control schedules.
