Class SinglePointCrossover<G extends Gene<?,G>,C extends Comparable<? super C>>

All Implemented Interfaces:

public class SinglePointCrossover<G extends Gene<?,G>,C extends Comparable<? super C>> extends MultiPointCrossover<G,C>
Single point crossover

One or two children are created by taking two parent strings and cutting them at some randomly chosen site. E.g.

Single-point crossover

If we create a child and its complement we preserving the total number of genes in the population, preventing any genetic drift. Single-point crossover is the classic form of crossover. However, it produces very slow mixing compared with multi-point crossover or uniform crossover. For problems where the site position has some intrinsic meaning to the problem single-point crossover can lead to small disruption than multi-point or uniform crossover.
