Paper Abstract

Chromosome design has been shown to be a crucial element in developing genetic algorithms which approach global solutions without premature convergence. The consecutive positioning of parameters with high-correlations and relevance enhances the creation of genetic building blocks which are likely to persist across recombination to provide genetic inheritance. Incorporating positional gene relevance is challenging, however, in multi-dimensional design problems. We present a hybrid chromosome designed for optimizing a fragmented patch antenna which combines linear and two-dimensional gene representations. We compare previous results obtained with a linear chromosome to solutions obtained with this new hybrid representation.
