Class SafeFitnessCrossover

source code

object --+

Perform crossovers, but do not allow decreases in organism fitness.

This doesn't actually do any crossover work, but instead relies on another class to do the crossover and just checks that newly created organisms do not have less fitness. This is useful for cases where crossovers can

__init__(self, actual_crossover, accept_less=0.0)

source code 

Initialize to do safe crossovers.


o actual_crossover - A Crossover class which actually implements crossover functionality.

o accept_less - A probability to accept crossovers which generate less fitness. This allows you to accept some crossovers which reduce fitness, but not all of them.
