I'd like to have some information about this lib I am using, which
from my point of view has quite some problems.
Could anybody explain me what the following methods and properties
for a DemeGA stand for:
a. populationSize : the size of each population or the size of all
populations? I understood it's the former but no
information is given on the guide.
b. nReplacement: as it should be used to determine the number of
individuals to be replaced, could you tell me why
I get as a message: 'the nReplacement percentage
should be kept between 0.0 and 1.0'? Isn't it this
the range of values for pReplacement?
c: Can the replacement and migration methods be used in conjunction or
the user has to choose one of them?
d. Why customized initialaters and/or other operators are not correctly
set for all members of the population?
I debug my code and I found out that *SOME* individuals had the
initializer set to SexCross and the mutator to AsexCross instead of
e. Is there any memory restriction for the use of GAlib classes?
If not, could you explain me why the same program works fine with
a small population and it does not work (giving me the above mentioned
problems) with bigger ones?
I would appreciate a prompt reply as an explanation is urgently required.
Thank you very much indeed.
