Propagation of schema
||It has been suggested that this article be merged into Schema (genetic algorithms). (Discuss) Proposed since December 2011.|
|This article appears to be a dictionary definition.|
In evolutionary computing such as genetic algorithms and genetic programming, propagation refers to the inheritance of characteristics of one generation by the next. For example, a schema is propagated if individuals in the current generation match it and so do those in the next generation. Those in the next generation may be (but don't have to be) children of parents who matched it.
