algorithms mutation plays usually secondary role. Mutation
rate is usually assumed on the level much below 1%. In our
example mutation is equivalent to the random bit change of a
given pattern. In this simple example with short strings and
small population with a typical mutation rate of 0.1%, our
patterns remain practically unchanged by the mutation
process. The second generation for our example is shown in
Table If size of the population from one generation to another is the same,
therefore two parents should generate two children. By combining
two strings two another...
