Paper Abstract

This paper demonstrates the application of genetic algorithms (GAs) to the real-time search problem of fractal image compression. An approach using GAs has been simulated and compared with both an exhaustive search method and a heuristic multi-grid method. Results, for various block sizes, show that the GA based approach offers a computationally more efficient search than either of the other methods.
