Crossover and Muta/on •  Each of them provides a different “heuris/c” to search the solu/on space. •  Roughly, guided by the 2nd parent, crossover produces with high probability individuals which, under the same condi/on, would be produced with low probability using muta/on. –  i.e. crossover gives faster convergence •  Muta/on supplies new gene/c materials to increase/maintain popula/on diversity.
