Genex v0.2.1 Genex.Population View Source

A collection of Chromosomes.

The Population represents the pool of solutions you are trying to optimize. Ideally, you persist the 'fittest' features from generation to generation until you converge on a solution.

The Population struct contains a number of useful fields that can be analyzed after the algorithm runs.
