An Introduction to Genetic Algorithms and to Their Use in Information Retrieval. (English)
Online CDROM Rev. 18, No. 1, 3-13 (1994).
Genetic algorithms, a class of nondeterministic algorithms in which the role of chance makes the precise nature of a solution impossible to guarantee, seem to be well suited to combinatorial-optimization problems in information retrieval. Provides an introduction to techniques and characteristics of genetic algorithms and illustrates their operation in several textual information retrieval problems. (ERIC)
