Coders are the most evolved life forms.

Evolutionary algorithms

Evolutionary or genetic algorithms are optimization algorithms that are inspired by the evolution of life. They work by identifying the good parts of different suboptimal solutions, and attempting to combine them to make newer better solutions.

Presentation Summary

In this presentation, I present:

  • Description of abstract idea of evolutionary algorithms.
  • Some info on why it works.
  • Details of applying it to 1-d bin packing problem.


My compressed sensing notebook (html) and related python library.


I just used Wikipedia mostly.

All optimization.
