Genetic operators operating on either create or destroy instances of H-or both, or neither. If you have an H- member parent: Prob{at least one of its offspring is an H-member} (Prob(crossover doesn’t damage))(Prob(mutation doesn’t damage)) Prob(no crossover damage) Prob(crossover point doesn’t fall in defining length) = - ( ) - 1 pcd H L 1 where d(H) = defining length of H. Prob(no mutation damage) = prob(no fixed bits in H flipped)=(1-p m ) o(H) where o(H)=order of H =#(fixed bits in H) Hence, prob that any given parent in ∩ ( ) H P t will have at least one offspring in ∩ ( ) H P t will have at least one offspring in H is ≥ - - ( - ) ( ) 1 pcdHL 1 1 pm o H Use this to calculate a lower bound on | + H Pt 1| (# H members in P(t+1)): Prob{H member is picked as a parent on any pick}=

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
