Foundations of Genetic Algorithms 1991 (FOGA 1) discusses the theoretical foundations of genetic algorithms (GA) and classifier systems.

This book compiles research papers on selection and convergence, coding and representation, problem hardness, deception, classifier system design, variation and recombination, parallelization, and population divergence. Other topics include the non-uniform Walsh-schema transform; spurious correlations and premature convergence in genetic algorithms; and variable default hierarchy separation in a classifier system. The grammar-based genetic algorithm; conditions for implicit parallelism; and analysis of multi-point crossover are also elaborated. This text likewise covers the genetic algorithms for real parameter optimization and isomorphisms of genetic algorithms. This publication is a good reference for students and researchers interested in genetic algorithms.
