A Genetic Algorithm for Fixed-Size Subset Selection
Released Nov 2, 2018 by Mark A. Wolters
Provides a function that uses a genetic algorithm to search for a subset of size k from the integers 1:n, such that a user-supplied objective function is minimized at that subset. The selection step is done by tournament selection based on ranks, and elitism may be used to retain a portion of the best solutions from one generation to the next. Population objective function values may optionally be evaluated in parallel.
